Golden Canna After An Early Saturday Morning Dew

Cannas have been a favorite in southern gardens since late Victorian times. Kin to banana and ginger, this flowering plant can be seen in most flower gardens of Itawamba County. Golden Canna (Canna flaccida) is native to the wetlands of the southeastern United States and Central America and the Antilles. This plant loves the hot humid Mississippi summers and mild winters and provides a vivid golden palette for many Itawamba County country gardens.
