Gardeners' Notes:

In the heat of summer 'Striped Beauty' will grow well in water situations as well as in the ground and in pots.
A very versatile and very pretty canna. White lines on the yellow petals meet to form a cross in the flower. Reddish throat and white pin striped green leaves. I like using it to contrast with my dark leafed cannas and with bedding plants.

Very happy with this canna. It is in it's 2nd year and has multiplied substantially. Seems to have a pretty lengthy bloom cycle, too. Very tall, over 5'.

I really LOVE this one and tried last year with a very small tuber from a friend but it didn't make it so I purchased another one this spring and hope that it does well for me. So far it has out grown the pot and I have put it in the ground.
