Interesting Notes about Canna:

When drama and color are needed for the container or garden, Canna does the job. By association the large leaves and colorful flowers bring a touch of tropical to the scenery and make a great contrast when combined with smaller-leaved companions. They are easy to grow and somewhat flexible in their preferences of moist, well-drained soils and full sun.
