I just ordered three of these beautiful cannas for my garden. They won't be available until March, but, believe me, I will be eagerly awaiting their arrival. This photo really brings out the beauty of these flowers.

The seedlings that I received from the source I ordered from have now grown to be plants. They are beautiful. I can hardly wait for them to bloom!
