Canna Cleopatra
Canna 'Cleopatra' at San Marcos Growers
 

A very beautiful old cultivar but, like its namesake, this canna has been known to do an about face; usually it is a green leafed plant having large yellow flowers with red spots but it often throws out a pure or part red flower as well as a leaf with broad maroon stripes. This has also given rise to a common name, "Harlequin Canna" and it has also been known as 'Spanish Emblem'.

Scott Ogden in Garden Bulbs for the South writes that the "Harlequin Canna... may be seen everywhere in Southern gardens, and it is always an attraction". Our Canna selection 'Sangria' was made from a vegetative sport from this plant. Plant in a well amended soil and water regularly for optimum performance.
