Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

This new compact selection dons sturdy, bluish-green leaves and complementary bright, citrine-yellow flowers.  It’s the perfect canna for small urban gardens and patio containers.  Add Lemon Punch to larger mixed containers for a nice, upright contrast to other large leaved tropicals and annuals.  Lemon Punch is a truly tropical, long blooming, virus negative beauty for the hot days of summer!
