canna-spp-two-colorsMany plants in the world are called Bandera Española. The reason is that they have the colors of the Spanish flag in it, red and yellow. In our garden we also have them growing.

The kind we have is the ‘canna spp’ also known as ‘canna lily’.
They have deep green leaves, grow untill 7 feet high and the flowers come is several colors: completely yellow, yellow with red spots, deep red, red with yellow spots, orange-red and maybe more. They are flowering a few times a year.
Some time ago I even spotted a plant which had a few red and a few yellow flowers, all in one plant. This must be a twist of nature.
Check out the pictures of this nice and easy plant.
