I hope I got the right canna here :)
their leaves are also intriguing..
Very distinct flowers. Picture taken 9/21/03.
The foliage is very variable. Some shoots are even solid purple, haven't seen any flowers on those shoots yet.
petals had fallen, so re-arranged for this image
Very little yellow this time.
Striking flower, each blossom is different and foliage changes, with different brown streaks. No foliage here.That's a Rhodie behind it
Bold & vibrant colors.
I just love all the color suprises these canna blooms produce! My favorite canna!
Had solid maroon leaves from Cleopatra, that had red blossoms edged with yellow
Take this, O'Keeffe!

Canna CLEOPATRA Early season leaves before bloom, with unusually large proportion of dark on the two-tone leaves.
Plant's first year in the backyard (planted next to the house). We will see how it handles Pennsylvania winter.
