Here are a couple of pics from my garden recently. Lynn (A Crafty Cubit) gave the yellow beauty to me. The apricot remains unknown and subsequently names Susie's Canna. I think this is Cleopatra.

Susie's Canna.... I love this color. This tends to be a short (2 ft) plant whereas the Cleo and a couple others I have are 4 ft.

This is a pic from about 2 weeks ago. Today there is a bloom... I'll try to get a pic tomorrow morn. It's bright and orangy red.

Cleo again. This bloom seems to last longer than others.

Beautimous Susie! My Canna leaves are looking like crispy critters right about now... When I divide them I will have to look for a better placement so they get a little more pm shade.

Cool pic Susie!

We have several different canna's but Tropicana is my favorite.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘...Holy Crap ...What a ride!'

Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers
