Angela’s Garden Notes:

If you like Canna 'Intrigue' you'll love our new Blueberry Sparkler. It’s a real designer's canna with purple leaves and blue-grey undersides, making the perfect foil for the sturdy, medium pink flowers.  This new selection is tall, slender, and full of grace unlike some of the other bolder foliaged cannas. Blueberry Sparkler adds deep, colorful foliage and a truly tropical feel to mixed containers and perennial borders.  The self-cleaning, all summer blooms are an added bonus to the boldly colored foliage.
