Cannas from my sister
01-FEB-2012 Yvonne

Cannas from my sister

My sister grows Australian natives, and after her marriage broke up moved back
with Mum and has taken over the gardening, Mum now being in her 90s. Last
visit she passed on to me a batch of these cannas which no longer fitted in
her theme of only natives, but they go well amongst red roses and I soon found
a spot in the garden for them, and I'm glad to say, they're thriving! I'll
have to wait to find out the colour of the bloom, so far there's just these
rather attractive leaves!

Beautiful! I have a special place in my heart for these as Grandma always had them the length of her driveway in assorted colors.

Those leaves make quite a statement all by themselves!

Think they are the same as what I have in the garden... they seem to be always dying off.. maybe I dont water them enough!! nice shot.

With these leaves they don´t need to bloom at all.

If they never bloom the leaves are worth having.
