Hoping I get to see this one open fully Jason. The earlier bud withered before it opened. Just been out to give it a good watering 🤞🤞 @hebelover

So…in answer to the question will the flower be yellow or orange? It’s both! 🤦‍♀️😂 #canna #canna-bengal-tiger #canna-pretoria #ajsept22

Hi Angela! Actually your canna is #canna-pretoria if you tap on that and take a look see you will find yours, the way to tell the difference between tropicanna gold and Pretoria is that Pretoria has a dark very thin edge on it like yours and your flowers will be orange not yellow, but either way this canna is gorgeous! 💘😍

Love the foliage on this Tropicanna. It looks like it’s got a flower about to bloom too, so can’t wait to see it in its full glory 😀 @hebelover @midnightgardener @hkyfvr

Not looking forward to those kind of temperatures Diane! Hoping we can get through to the end of October before I have to start overwintering my tropical plants 🤞🤞 @hkyfvr

Although this one isn’t second hand, it was still a bargain from T K Maxx. Do love hunting for bargains! 😆 @hebelover

Thanks Elaine 😀 The one behind is an Ensete, an Ethiopian banana tree….first year growing it and it’s surpassed my expectations. Love it! @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Thanks Jeff! The banana tree is now completely hiding the little figure sat on the plinth. It’s truly claimed this corner as it’s own! 😆 @jeatacake

They are beautiful and I’d love one…….how do they cope in winter..

They need to be overwintered Elaine. I bought mine at an end of season sale last September. It was small enough I just left it in its pot in a very sheltered protected coldframe. This year I will need to dig it up, cut the leaves off, tip it upside down for about a week to drain any water then dry store wrapped in horticultural fleece. First year I’ll have done this. Desperately hoping I get it right & it comes through as I’ve fallen in love with it!!! @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Wow that’s a bit of work I’ll have to think about that…..I’d have thought for it to grow bigger it would have to stay in the pot….but I know nothing about them….may have to think about that…🤔 thanks
