Sounds like  Canna x generalis 'Bengal Tiger' (AKA  'Pretoria') - one
of my favs.  It's a good increaser; got my start from a friend and
it's one I keep going in a pot (well, a couple of pots now)...very
striking plant and quite nifty with a skirt of Ipomea b. 'Margarita'
IMO.  It grows in the ground as well as a pond; doesn't need standing
water, actually.  It's not actually a "rare" type anymore.  Was once.
