Hi Youngdaisy! this is Canna Tropicanna...it's flower is a fiery orange and I was disappointed with their showing this year too. My old standby put on the best show as usual...I also bought a Canna Tropicanna Gold, it has just started to flower (just in time for frost) it was so pokey that I figured it wouldn't flower... I posted a pic...cause the flowers are an amazing yellow and the leaves are pretty too.... green, cream, yellow stripe. I'm going to pot it up to bring inside... and I'll just dig the roots of the rest as usual...

Boy, this just proves another point to me....garden foliage color and textures is about more than just the flowers and blossoms....

If you want a study of line and texture and colour contrast...in green and white...check out the pics of the calla lilies...the leaves are just gorgeous...strong, architectural arrow shape with white dapples! gorgeous!

With foliage this beautiful , I could easily forgive it for not blooming at all ! Definitely one of my favorites, now that the tubers are alittle larger, maybe it will take off like your others next year !

I'll be digging them up pretty soon, Flcrazy. it's getting pretty chilly at night now...temps in the 30's. My garden is ringed by tall trees, the house and a fence so the flowers are in a little pocket that seems protected, at least from the early, lighter frosts.
