Can Cannas 'Mix'?

I am sure there are several of you out there who know but I have no clue...will canna varieties mix with eachother? And if so how far away do they need to be from eachother to stop this?

I did a google search but came up with nothing :-/

Cross pollination can happen. Not sure what to do about it, the bees will carry the pollen from plant to plant.

It's not a problem. Worst case you get some seed that if you plant it may yield some interesting plants, otherwise, it does not affect the rhizomes, so next year you will get the exact same plant from the rhizomes.

It's really a non-issue.

Thanks guys! I just would not want to have a trade with someone in the future and give them what I would think were named plants and me be incorrect.
