Angela’s Garden Notes:

This new compact growing canna with bright-green leaves shows off radiant yellow flowers covered with reddish-orange spots.  The speckled blooms draw your eye into the center of this lovely, yet tough bloom.  This is the perfect canna for small urban gardens and patio containers.  Add this to larger mixed containers for a speck-led-tacular looking contrast to other large leaved tropicals and annuals.  Maui Punch is truly tropical, long blooming, virus negative beauty for the hot days of summer!
