And here's what it looked like just prior to blooming:

It is wonderous strange where the Canna form their seed pods, below where the flower was on the stem ...

The Canna Flacida bloom shown above dropped off and the pod formed below it. It also looks kind of like it will bloom again with what look like new flower buds above the pods.
