    Canna Lily Bed. 10 July 2006 Canna Lily Bed. This is the first bloom in Zone 5. The plants were started in pots about February 2006, and transplanted in the bed on 15 May 2006. Some tubulars were given to me, so the flowering types will be a suprise to some degree. There are about 25 plants. We had rain last night, which is sorely needed. May we have a lot more today!

    These look like cannas. Beautiful yellow with red flowers. I love the reddish leaves.

    The observation that these are cannas, and not calla lilies is correct. Callas belong to the genus Zantedeschia and are arum-like in appearance, with inflorescences consisting of a sheathlike, colorful spathe housing a spikelike spadix.

    Would you please change the title of the thread to Canna Lily to maintain my reputation such as it is. Thanks for the correction.
    Durgan.

    If you can't do it with your Edit button (I don't remember if I've tried this with my own posts) then you'll have to appeal to the moderator I guess.
