Gardeners' Notes:

This is a very striking canna with red stems and dark green leaves edged in red. The flowers are small and bright red. I grew this canna from seeds and it is hardy in my zone 8b garden.

Large bright red spikey flowers are held high above pretty darker green leaves
with a red edge. Easy to grow and quite 'regal' looking.
