    ……..what a luscious color! Lots of buds!

  2. Have always thought of cannas as being quite ordinary but this hybrid is gorgeous! You’re a magician when it comes to presenting the prize blooms, Eliza. 🙂

  4. It’s got a nice glow about it. Lovely!

    Beautiful. Do you have to protect your cannas in winter?

  6. Wow! Love the colors and detail!

    Just gorgeous. I have not had much success with these – cannas?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Diana. This is my first attempt with cannas. Most are tall and tricky to place. This one is dwarf and fits into the garden much more easily.

    So beautiful. ♥♥♥

    What a gorgeous shade of yellow. I’m not usually a fan of yellow, but love lemon colours. I love the streaks of apricot/russett on those yellow petals. Makes the Indian Shot(?) plants really interesting.

  12. Gorgeous! Such rich color!

  13. Goodness, that looks exotic!

  14. Jewels says:

    Gorgeous Eliza!

  15. Exactly what I needed today, Eliza!

  16. Widdershins says:

    Great photo, wonderful colours, but I’m sure that flower is poking its tongue out at us! 😀

  17. Kris P says:

    Now that’s a flower that glows! Cannas are SO tempting. If only they weren’t so thirsty.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      They seem to love all the rain we’ve had the past seven weeks. Between that and the heat/humidity, they’re finally coming into their own. Like dahlias, they seem to be late summer bloomers here.

  18. Lovely colour and fine detail.

  19. Indie says:

    Gorgeous! Such rich colors with the yellow to orange to red. I know some people don’t like orange tones in the garden, but I love them.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Indie. I used to be picky about color combinations, but nature really doesn’t care, so I’ve been letting myself experiment with color more. It’s all good, right? 🙂

    Beautiful! I can’t believe the variety you have in your garden. It’s a treat every tie you share. Thank you!
