Canna ID

Anyone know what kind of canna this is? The picture was taken at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. It was not labeled. Thanks!

There are so many kinds, but if I had to guess, it looks a lot like the species Canna indica. When I visited Kew, I seemed to notice that species rather than hybrids seemed to be the preferred plants since Kew was a showplace for exotic specimens from all over the world in the glory days of the British Empire and they grew the wild types as collected for display.
