Sighing! I'm sorry, but this is definitely not 'Cleopatra' ('Yellow King Humbert' correctly) but it is C. 'Britannia' .. see photo.
There are so many canna that are mislabelled by suppliers/nurseries etc, I hope you don't mind me sending this info .. the photo is from my collection in Australia.

'Britannia' colours may vary (depending on weather conditions), they never look like C. 'Yellow King Humbert' aka 'Cleopatra' (a registered name, not it's original name)

I don't mind at all, Dianne. Smiling Thank you, and welcome to ATP.

I'll check into this soon and move the image to its proper spot. It probably won't be done until the holidays are past, but I'll mark it as needing attention.
