This is a wonderful plant - I normally find Cannas a bit garish for my taste but this one has both vivid flowers and real class, plus it's an enormous tropical looking banana-y thing to 10ft or more in full flower with broad lush green leaves.
Plus, it's been hardy here. All I've done is give it a thick pile of straw in winter.
It dies down completely (the straw is held in place by the dead stems) but always reappears in May and is luxuriant and magnificent by August. A wonderful plant for anyone with a taste for the tropics.
Many thanks to Alan for the original plant.
