This is my first year growing canna and I have fallen in love with C. indica 'Purpurea'.

If you have extra rhizomes I would love, love, LOVE to trade with you.

I have a lot of seeds including perennials and ornamental grasses, and dahlia tubers, iris rhizomes, daylilies, heirloom glads and hardy glads to trade -- check out my list. I really want to grow Purpurea this year.
