Tropicanna Begins to Bloom

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.


  1. You're making me want to have these in my garden. I just love those vibrant colors in the flowers and also in the leaves. Thanks for sharing...Balisha

  2. Don't you love the challenge, Zoey? Happy August gardening :)
