Diseased Canna?

Howdy!

Bought canna rhyzomes last week and I planted them in pots. One is coming up and the leaf is not one toned. I thought I read that any cannas have even green leaves and streaks could be that yellow mottle virus. Do the photos below look like a plant that is infected or are there varieties that have two toned leaves?

Thanks!

Oh... this canna is 'The President' and the pictures on the box and on the web all have one toned green leaves.

I think it is too early to tell. There can be many factors that affect the first few leaves.

I would definitely keep it isolated from any other cannas you may have. If you don't have other cannas, don't worry right now.

Post some pictures later as it grows.

Thanks for taking the time to respond green thumb guy!

No other cannas other than the 3 other new pots. I will post photos as they grow.

Thanks!

Okay... second leaf opened up on the above plant. Looks better, but still not completely green. Anything to worry about yet?

Here are two others pots that are just opening up:
