Today when I attended a garden show .. I looked for some Tropicanna. Well the ones that the vendor was selling was labled as Tropicanna but the leaves were verigaated green. Are there two types???

That sounds like 'Bengal Tiger' canna to me. Similar in that the leaves are striped, but certainly not the same

Is there a possibility that the label was ÂTropicanna Gold and not just ÂTropicannaÂ? The ÂTropicanna Gold does have the green variegated foliage whereas ÂTropicanna has the red variegated foliage. Kent
