Angela’s Garden Notes:

From tropical plant breeder Brian Williams we present a tropical that resembles another tropical.  Funny, huh, but we didn't think there would be abetter name to describe how this plant looks architecturally in the garden.  Bird of Paradise plants are so stunning and so is this canna look-alike with it's blueish green and maroon foliage and tangerine orange blooms.  If cannas alone are not tropical enough for you - try this new selection and you're sure to be satisfied with it's stunning appearance.
