Canna, Semi-Dwarf ‘Cleopatra’

Cleopatra’ is a medium height plant. Most of the petals are yellow with red speckles but can be marked with solid red ranging from a streak to a full petal. This canna has dark green foliage with bronze-red variegation that can vary from a streak to a full leaf. Grows very well in water, too. A very beautiful old cultivar but, like its namesake, this canna has been known to do an about face; usually it is a green leafed plant having large yellow flowers with red spots but it often throws out a pure or part red flower as well as a leaf with broad maroon stripes.

Cannas bring a touch of the tropics to wherever they are planted. These exotic looking plants are indispensable for a splendid summer border bursting with drama. Their size, bright, showy flowers and foliage patterns ensure that your Cannas will stand out. Makes a great centerpiece in bedding schemes and large containers. As soon as a stalk has finished blooming, remove it and a new one will take its place. If faded flowers are not removed, seeds will form and flowering will cease.
