Tallest, Dark, Red flowered Canna

I'm liking Canna a bunch. I tried some last year and they came back without digging and replanting. Great!

Then I put some in a dryish sun bed, thinking 'what the heck.' They are doing well too. It has been a wet spring/summer.

So I'm looking for more for a particular spot in the garden.

Can you tell me your favorite red-flowered, purple leaved Canna that are at least 8 feet tall? The foliage has to rise above some Hyssop and goldenrod.

Brent and Becky's has Intrigue at 8'-10' but it's orange. I think I own that one already. (It's the one that survuved the winter)

My Black Knight grew to about 5 ft last year. It might grow taller in your zone.
