Plant of the Week: April 25: Bandanna-of-the-Everglades (aka Golden Canna) (Canna flaccida)

The beautiful Bandanna-of-the-Everglades (Canna flaccida) is a herbaceous perennial tropical-looking plant that can be found in wet ditches, marshes, and swamp margins. It ranges throughout the US Coastal Plain from South Carolina to Florida and Texas. This is a rhizomatous plant which means it grows from underground stems (rhizomes) that are constantly giving rise to additional shoots.
