Tropical Flowers of Red Cannas

Bright Red Cannas can be a bit bold but they can also be very beautiful, here I will cover the cannas where red makes up the most of the base color.

There are many canna plants with different shades of red tropical flowers some are a scarlet red, this would be the red that makes up most of my collection, other are rich red, cerise red, canna Valentine is classed as a blue red, some appear a beautiful velvety red tone and a few are classed as being dark black red.

Cannas pictured below all have green foliage, the dark foliage cannas with red flowers are really outstanding with their range of dark leaves.
