RE: Re: dwarf cannas


Jim, 

I've grown to love canna "Tropicana' for its gorgeous foliage!  I've
planted it in containers on my deck.  There is a photo of it with coleus
'Molten Lava' in my Yahoo briefcase.  I've never had the time to dig it
up in the fall, so I have to purchase it every spring, if I can find it!

personally don't like cannas, but among those of you who do, have any of

you tried "tropicanna," which was introduced a couple of years ago? it's

purple foliage make it attractive to me. if it wasn't a canna, i'd
probably 
plant some.
