Penny-glad you are enjoying it, I'm loving mine, some have such vibrant red with the yellow it all depends on the varigation of the leaves. This one is definately a keeper, I'm not sure if it will seed well but I'm hoping. I had some Cleopatra years ago when I just started growing cannas but they were just yellow with red spotting this is sooo different. I hope Glen had good results too.

Kathy,
I think I have three seeds developing on mine now. Hopefully the squirrels won't get to them before they are ripe.

Penny & Glen-glad I could share with you, yes they are showstopping, I have one that had totally black leaves and has a cool orange red flower, every bloom has been different depending on the leaf varigation, I'm hoping they multiply like crazy and overwinter well so I can share some more at the plant swap next year.

Mine isn 't blooming any more now and like you I am just waiting to dig it up to store for the winter. Don't say that 'F' word. I am not really ready for that yet althought yesterday I did clean out a bunch of stuff in front of the porch and I did cut down my Gold Flame honeysuckle that was looking pretty ratty about now.
