Lovely Canna Plants - Poem by Marilyn Lott

The Canna plants are so attractive
But they are a little bit particular
If they have the warm weather
They will grow utterly spectacular

They’re raised all over the world
In the beginning grew very tall
With leaves wide and impressive
But nothing stays the same after all

The French did some crossbreeding
Developed new colors and styles
Italians got into the picture
Creating dwarf plants after awhile

Quite an amazing story, don’t you think?
With many twists and turns
It just makes the flower more interesting
Like many varieties of delightful ferns

So the Canna has quite a history
And it’s certainly a beautiful plant
We have to say it’s universal
Which adds an appealing kind of slant!
