The Q&A Archives: Can you help me identify a plant?

Question: My mother recently acquired a couple of plants which she transplanted into her garden. We don't know what they are nor how to take care of them. They are about 2 1/2 feet tall, have reddish blade-like leaves, and bloom with clusters of large yellow flowers similar to an iris. I hope this description helps. Thank you.

P.S. I marked these plants as perenials, but I really don't know which category they fit into and I had to choose a category to submit this question.

Answer: It's really difficult to identify a plant without seeing it, but I wonder if your plants are Canna's?
