Canna with a difference

Canna is a common trpical flowering plant. It comes in red , yellow and orange colors, often they have a combination of colors too. This is one is so different from the usual.

These plants grow from rhizomes and  are pretty easy to grow.  They do quite well in ponds too.  These are basically tropical plants which have adapted themselves to all kinds of climates now.  However, they need 6-8 of sunshine to thrive.

They have broad attractive leaves, some are variegated and some come in reddish brown shades. They are easy to grow and are not prone to diseases. Slugs and snails are the only things to attack them.

These plants are given as father’s day gift in Thailand. The seeds, which are really hard are used as beads in Jewelry . I have seen nuns make rosaries with the seeds. when I was a kid.
