A Rainbow of Cannas with Variegated Foliage
These colorful tropical plants offer a palette of colors that include reds, pinks, yellow and greens, white silver and cream.
Canna Pringle Bay is a fine example of these exotic plants whilst showing stripes of pink, cream and yellow over green foliage.
Every leaf is striped different and as the leaves age some of the stripes fade, note the older leaves in the background of the picture.
on Canna Stuttgart is something to behold, with white color blocks
edging onto green blocks thus also giving some silver and blue green shades.
Canna Rainbow pictured above from 1899 was described as a magnificent novelty amongst foliage plants with each leaf beautifully variegated with pink, scarlet, orange, grey, green etc.
Its leaves are described as wide, waxy and graceful and being more charming than other cannas.
Even in the year 1900 there were cannas with variegated leaves and variegated canna flowers.
