Cannas are tropical and subtropical flowering plants with large, banana like leaves. They add an instant touch of the tropics to gardens. A surge in interest and hybridizing has resulted in a dazzling array of cannas to choose from.
Cannas are often grown from their foliage alone. The flowers come in shades and combinations of yellow, orange, red and pink and are borne on tall stalks coming out of the foliage.
Cannas grow from swollen underground stems, correctly known as rhizomes, which store starch, and this is the main attraction of the plant to agriculture, having the largest starch particles of all plant life.
