The Q&A Archives: Red Large Brown Leafed Flower

Question: I am looking for the name of the flower that grows to about 6 feet. It blooms in late Summer and has dark brown large leaves and usually a large red flower. It might be a tuber and not a bulb. Would you have the name of this flower?

Answer: I think you are describing a variety of canna. It grows from a rhizome that must be dug each fall and replanted in the spring in cold winter areas.
