Canna Color

“Canna Color”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Rain has kept me out of the garden for many days lately. I sure miss being able to stroll around and see what the plants are up to. Family issues have also preoccupied me, and I haven’t been blogging like I want to, but I am trying to get back in the routine of gardening and reporting on what is going on in my garden.

The cannas have really been doing well with all this heat and rain we have been having lately. Tropical Sunrise is doing particularly well, sending up many new shoots. It is nice that this lovely orange canna is spreading. I can use the extra plants. This canna is planted next to blue plumbago, and the combination is a lot more attractive than I would have first thought.

 

 

China Doll, a lovely pink canna that I have had for several years is also blooming well. I always look forward to its blooming. I think this was the first canna that I ever planted.

 

 

Even though we are getting into late summer and fall color is just starting to show that it will be here soon, there are still enough bloomers like the canna to give a summer, tropical feel to the area.
