Re: Re: cannas

I love the foliage too, and just out of curiosity Jim, why don't you like
them? Is it because they spread so rapidly or because they get to looking
ratty in mid-summer?

As for the flowers, they are now coming out with some stunning ones.
'Journey's End' is one of my favorites and it has plain old green leaves.
'tropical Rose' is another. and I just bought 'Pacifica from Plant Delights
which has dark purple foliage and a NEON orange bloom. Should be an
interesting combo when it blooms.
