Canna x generalis


My entry for bloom day is my last surviving Canna Lily, the only one the snails have not destroyed. It never fails to have flowers every month. This month is particularly beautiful.

What a beautiful plant. I will need to try cannas after seeing this. I hope you can keep this one slug free it's wonderful.

Those are beautiful blooms. I love the red spots. My cannas were torn up by gross caterpillars that rolled up in the leaves.

The Dubious Gardener loves cannas, and I usually get him a couple every year. He would be very envious of this gorgeous specimen!

You made my day much nicer. The wind is blowing fiercely outside, temperature is dropping, and here comes a ray of light. I like this canna!

That canna is a showstopper. So bright. It would be so out of place in my garden right now.

Looking at your other posts, you've got lots of flowers to admire in your garden on this bloom day.

It's very pretty Rusty, I like the dots on the flowers and yellow is such a cheerful colour too! My blooms are up too.
