RE: canna with the blue-est foliage...?

To my knowledge, there are no cannas with blue foliage or flowers! Cannas may have green, bronze (red) or a combination to the two but not blue. Occasionally someone will describe a canna leaf as being blue-green or even a bronze leaf with pigmentation interspersed with green as being a blue hue but in reality this does not hold up to a color spectrometers criteria for blue.
To date, blue has not been reveled in cannas. I think we are only hoping and wishing.
