That sounds like 'Bengal Tiger' canna to me. Similar in that the leaves are striped, but certainly not the same

Is there a possibility that the label was ‘Tropicanna Gold’ and not just ‘Tropicanna’? The ‘Tropicanna Gold’ does have the green variegated foliage whereas ‘Tropicanna’ has the red variegated foliage. Kent
