Red canna flowers

Do you guess it right? My last week post about this,
actually it is a close up part of Canna flower as below.

Cannas are tropical and subtropical flowering plants with large, banana like leaves and gladiolus-like flowers. They are one of the popular flowers you can find here in Singapore, mostly planted for landscape decoration. They are also called “Canna lily”, although not a true lily. Canna flowers come in many colors, yellow, pink, orange, two tone color and much more, but no green, black, blue, at least I didn’t see it from anywhere.
My potted Yellow Canna flower is flowering from time to time, the most easy growing among those flowering plants.
  You can grow Canna flowers by seed, or by rhizomes.
Slow down your rushing time, you will easily find this beautiful flowers just anywhere when last time you pass by them and may not notice their beauty.

my canna has red leaves, they have grown wild because I am too lazy to weed them.

I have 3 cannas (2 purple variants and 1 yellow). The purple ones are my latest and they are doing fabulously as they flower and sprout new shoots at will within weeks from purchasing them. My yellow one was bought a year ago and had repaid me many times with its lovely blooms :)
