Canna brasiliensis

This is probably the hardiest of the species cannas, growing to about 3' with narrow plain green leaves it will self-seed around the garden. The flowers are small red and yellow and are followed by the inflated seedpods. It can stay in the ground all winter and will be ok down to -10c (provided the ground does not freeze) when it will die down and flower from July on. If it has some protection however, and in milder gardens, it will remain evergreen (min 0c), and be in flower from March to December. The main snag is the damage that can be caused by slugs and snails.
