Tama-tulipa grew to 10 feet and multiplied quickly the first year in my garden. Very vigorous! Although it was advertised as resistant to the canna leaf-roller, it did sustain some hits. However, the larger canna leaf-roller decimated it later in the season.

New to me this season, Tama-Tulipa has done very well here and increased well. Collected from Mexico and introduced by YuccaDo Nursery, it is said to be a hybrid of c. indica and c. glauca.
Hummingbirds are quite fond of this canna. also.
