Garden Canna

Garden Canna (Canna × generalis, 大花美人蕉).

Whatever the season, it seems canna is flowering along the park lakes. Sometimes its petals are red as Indian shot, sometimes the petals are pineapple yellow with orange drippings. In summer, the flowers seem to vibrate against the dense green lakeside, in winter they stand, slightly wilted against the grey sky and grey water.
