My first Tropicanna bloom appeared in the whiskey barrel.
The green/white striped leaves are Tropicanna 'Gold'. It has a lighter orange flower. Hopefully it will bloom this year. Trop 'Gold' seems to have a tough time producing blooms in my garden. Some years I only get the leaves, but that's OK, because I grow them mostly for the foliage anyway.
The Tropicannas were my first cannas and still my favorites.
The next two pictures are from 2005, when I used to spend a lot more time caring for the deck containers.
I don't think the Trops ever bloomed as much as they did that year. I think it was the first year I had them.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
