I have a strange caterpillar problem on an entire bed of cannas. I just came in from cutting the whole bed to the ground. Wish I had taken a picture but I was so upset I just took the clippers and went to town. This is the first time in about 15 years that this variety, C. Warscewczii, has had any kind of problem. It does not seem to be leaf rollers, there were no rows of holes. This critters cut perfect little squares from the edge of the leaves and folded them over and sealed them. There were tiny cats in each little "envelope". Grrrrrrr Angry
