If you are into the tropical look, don't miss growing the large and tall banana canna. The 12-14' tall stalks are home to huge, banana-like leaves, each green with a purple-red border.

While Canna 'Musafolia' does flower under optimal growing conditions, the flowers produced are small, red, and pale in size compared to the foliage and regular canna blooms. This is an excellent canna if you're looking to make a dramatic foliage statement in the garden.
