Those are some interesting marks on those leaves, do you know the name of the plant the seeds came from?

I love growing Canna from seeds!
I have 6 this year, they are just about ready to put out buds and I cannot wait to see what the flowers look like
...I hope you'll post a followup with blooms! :)

RE: Var canna from seed

Wow, that's beautiful! I's be so thrilled to get something like that from seed! I have grown cannas from seed for years and while I have gotten some red leaves and various flower colours, I have yet to get any stripe or variegation in the leaves.

Is it common to get the stripes if using seed from a striped variety or do they usually revert to solid?
