Compare with indian shot canna.

They used the seeds as bullets...

I've read that you can dig the tubers and cook like taters... still need to try that.

Canna Lily (Canna indica)

Yep, think you're right. Thanks. In your avatar, what's in your cat's mouth?

Was teaching the cat to catch stuff... Didn't realize those black lubbers were toxic...

Kitty didn't eat it... apparently she knew something I didn't.
