The name Canna originates from the Celtic word for a cane or reed. How a plant native to South America has a Celtic name is a mystery to me!  This is a genus of perennials that are rhizomatous.  

 A rhizome is a horizontal stem of a plant that is usually found underground and often sends out roots and shoots from its nodes. The genus consists of about 25 species.  The interesting thing about these plants is that they do not have true stems. Instead, what apear to be stems are collections of tightly furled leaf bases, rising from the rhizomes.  

The flowers are carried on slender stems that arise from the false stems and are narrow-petalled in the wild varieties but broad-petalled in the hybrids. Some of the varieties have large, crumpled flowers with striking variegations, a few of which resemble orchids. They flower in a wide range of vibrant colours, from yellows through oranges and reds, apricots, creams and pinks and some have a speckled apearance.
