Tropicanna, Pretoria, Tropical Sunrise, Topaz, Louis cottin

I have the above for trade.

I am not looking for canna or rooted plants, I'll take allium or lilium.

If you want to trade in person that's fine I am in NW Illinois.
Otherwise you will have to send your box first.

For those of you not familiar with these-- the first two have the showy leaves,
the last three bloom salmon-ish in color. 'Louis cottin' is a dwarf with a dark leaf that performs especially well blooming first and longest- until frost here in zone 5.
' 'Pretoria' also goes by the name 'Bengal tiger'. It performs equally well as a water plant.

Although I haven't tried to overwinter 'Tropical sunrise' and 'topaz' , I can tell you the others can overwinter 7 1/2 mo. dormant in my basement.

'Tropicanna' also goes by the name 'Phaison' and is the fussiest with 50% loss over the winter.

I have thinned the canna "herd" over the past couple of years from 18 types . These are the best of the best IMHO :)
