The spring garden

C. 'En Evant' is a French antique canna that dates back to 1914. It is just the sort of canna that the Victorians were crazy for, and I like it too.

Sorry, this is not 'En Evant' .. it's probably either 'Roma' or 'Brittania' (both are similar) .. 'En Evant' is spotted on yellow, not blotched, & the flower is smaller & less 'blousy'. The leaves of 'En Evant' are distinctly marked with a clear white edging .. check the leaves, for a better ID.
