new to cannas-???
I grew a canna from seed last year but had no idea what it was b/c it never bloomed. thought it might be a canna and when it died back from frost but sent up new shoots decided to bring it in for winter. Now I'm certain It was seed called robert kemp. It grew nicely all winter but shoots are more spindally than those killed by frost. Finally it is trying to bloom. The bud is about 3 inches long and salmon colored. Is this its color or will it turn red as it gets ready to open? is it a cross (do they grow true)? Or is it a deficiency. The leaves are also browning at the margins-I relized I should have been fertilizing it so did-is this the cause or might it have a disease? It definitely could also use more light.
