Canna Lily


Canna "Zebra"

Canna Lily is a pretty common flower around here, it adds a splash of tropical color on hedges and road sides.  They're usually mass-planted in groups of the same color for a stunning effect.  Not a true lily, Canna Lily is a genus of 19 species of flowering plants; they're clumping, hardy  perennials with some of the most vivid colors that you will ever see.

With arms outstretched I thank.  
With heart beating gratefully I love.  
With body in health I jump for joy.  
With spirit full I live.

~ Terri Guillemets

Wishing you a peaceful and prosperous New Year!

Just one of these magnificent flowers is stunning to me, a mass planted must look amazing. I wish that beauty was more common in my area.

Hi Luna, I know in the Philippines sometimes a beautiful flower like this is very common. When I get here in the US, geez, I have to buy it in piece. In my hometown, I would just ask my neighbor to give me at least one piece and they gave me all of what they have. I have bird of paradise and this one just planted this year, Hope to see them bloom next year. I like the color of this flower it's vibrant and look very happy. ^_^ Thanks for the visit and Wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
