So with the Autumn season approaching quickly I went in search of fall colors in our near triple digit temperatures and found...Cannas. Just for a few moments forget that these plants are here all summer and enjoy.
Canna Tropicanna in matching planters by the front door.
I've read that anoles will often claim a plant as their own
Considering the looks this one is giving me, I think it's true. "This one is taken, move on lady...."
Canna warscewicziii (center) and Intrique (l&r) are combined in the face planter provide more burgundy color.
The Yucca 'Color Guard' are in need of replacement soon as their time in the shade has not been kind.
This green isn't exactly a fall color but I am amazed at how pretty plain green canna foliage can be in the softer light of September. This is the special hybrid canna grown from seed and shared by a friend I have posted about previously.
