Cannas in June

Too bad it's not Cannes in June!! (VBG)
The water plants are just to the left of these cannas, also begun from a gift of two from the Master Gardeners' conference so long ago.
Cannas are such incredibly beautiful flowers. They come in a deep blood red, and also these fabulous yellow and orange blooms. The fluted petals are that gorgeous yellow, with dark orange centers.
As you can see, these are now in a clump which I'll have to separate before their next bloom season. Again, these winters...!!!!!
I have been experimenting with some fabrics to try to capture the brilliance of these blossoms. The buds are reminescent of Birds-of-Paradise. I'd love to get my hands on a few BoPs!
