Red Canna Lilly

This red canna lily flowers from mid summer. Its leaves are subtly striped with dark red and dark green. It started life in Middle Garden, back when the trees were tiny and things were sunny.

 I cover the canna with pea-straw in winter, just in case the frost gets it.

In recent years there hasn't been quite enough sun in this garden (the new trees have grown) so I've shifted the canna and placed it temporarily in a pot. I think it's just as happy.
