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.
Red canna names and heights, short growing varieties are up to one meter, medium is from above one to two meters and tall cannas are listed as above two meters up to two and a half meters tall.
These heights are measured from the ground to the top of the flowers.
