to the crazy plant people. I guess I should speak for myself I know I am a real crazy plant lady because all my family and friends call me plant crazy.
You are so right if any one is looking for a tropical look you cannot beat cannas. I had a lot but I let them die one year because I did not bring them inside for the winter. I have been slowly replacing them. I like the ones with different color leaves because the flowers really are not anything to write home about.
I would love to see some of pics of your cannas.
These are the few I have replaced.
Bengal Tiger in the garden with lilies
Intrigue is a tall canna. This one grew to 6' tall I put it in the garden next to a Rose of Sharon tree and it grew taller than the tree.
Canna Pink Sunburst
I planted Canna Tropicana and Intrigue in the same pot I will never do that again. By the end of summer you have to break the pot to get them out.
