This is the first bloom of the new cannas. The darker brown/wine foliage cannas with small red blooms I have had since '96. I believe they are known as Russian Red. I have some of the green foliage cannas with yellow bloom & red specks which I believe are Richard Wallace which I have also had since '96. They were hidden among the Russian Reds and didn't do much of anything until I seperated them about 3 yrs ago. This yr I bought two new varieties. The one shown here is Wyoming Canna. Also bought a green foliage canna that has the large red blooms and which is known as c. Indica var. Cherry Red. I will post the pics of that as soon as possible.
