Canna Lily – Beauty In The Flower And Foliage
Canna Lily is such a beautiful plant in foliage, and flowers.
I just love the full, luscious leaves, so sturdy and healthy looking.
The flower gets a very slow start before fully opening up into a vibrant beauty of color.
Canna Lily is a perennial plant, yet you can also call it an annual plant, as in many regions its tubular roots need to be dug up for winter, and stored in a cool, dry place for spring planting. Just like another tubular rooted plant, the Dahlia.
This year I planted several of the Red Canna Lily plants, and they did very well, despite the unbearable summer heat, unlike some of my other plants.
I admire their leaves as much as their flowers.
Here are some pictures for you to check out, and to let me know if you feel the same way.

Beautiful flower arrangement, and a close up view of a flower.
Just lovely, don’t you agree?
The extra work with storing the roots over the winter, is totally worth it!
