Canna 'Cleopatra' - 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. A very beautiful old cultivar. Grows 6 feet tall. Tuberous perennial. Full sun. Moderate water needs. Flowers summer-fall. Hardy to 0 degrees F. We grew this plant from 1997 until 2005 when it was diagnosed as having canna yellow mottle virus (CaYMV). We only continued to grow Canna varieties that were determined to not be infected nor susceptible to this virus.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Canna 'Cleopatra'.
