Tropicanna a Favorite at Chanticleer

August 9, 2018

In the October 2018 issue of Fine Gardening, Dan Benarcik, horticulturist at Chanticleer in Wayne, Pennsylvania, gave readers plenty of reasons to include versatile orange in their garden color schemes. In his article, Orange -This Fiery Color Fits in Every Season, Benarcik included Tropicanna canna as one of his 3 favorite plants for adding orange to summer garden designs.

 

In touting Tropicanna, he suggests “Trusses of tangerine-colored flowers rise above dramatic, multicolored leaves. Plant it where the sun will backlight  the foliage to reveal the orange glow hidden within.”
