Stunning Striata Canna

Cannas

Vividly colored foliage and showy flowers, which appear from late summer to fall, make cannas an exotic addition to mixed borders. 'Striata,' shown here, has broad, rich green leaves striped with yellow, and bright orange flowers. For similar flowers but dramatic, deep purple, leaves, go with 'Durban.' Cannas need full sun, well-drained soil and rhizome protection in locations that tend to freeze; they look very attractive in containers. Cannas can grow to 5 feet tall, depending on the variety.
