Canna show you a pretty plant?

I looked for a plant label for this beauty
and couldn't find one.  But I could tell 

by the foliage that's it's a canna cultivar, so
I'm going with 'Orange Bengal Tiger'.

  2. Even without being able to see the yellow striped leaves, I so trust your judgement as to be sure you are right.

    I wonder if the fact that they like water could have contributed to their name.

  3. I love the light through the flower petals. Canna's are a "feel good" plant, (bright and cheerful) especially when grown en masse. I think that the root can be eaten like a sweet potato. Warm regards.
