Grown in the water garden area, in a somewhat boggy area.

|It is a Canna, but without flowers present I can't say what species it may be.|

|I think that is Thalia dealbata.|

|I'm going with Thalia dealbata too, and our database could use photo's as there are currently none there!|
Check this page for photo's of leaves, blooms etc. http://www.wildflower.org/plan...

| That is it. It doesn't open into the big impressive blooms that the hybrids do. But oh so interesting when you come upon it in a garden. |
Thank you so much Jay and Lin.
I will add them to the database.

|One of the local Botanical Gardens uses them in demonstration ponds, to show how plants can be used to purify water. |

|Awesome photo Jay. |
That is where I took the photos in my above post. It is a water treatment area in the Oregon Garden. They partner up with the city of Silverton on treating the cities waste water. It has been a great success.
