Perhaps the most stunning Canna of all, Bloomsz Black Knight Canna is both bold and beautiful. Leaves of very deep red to almost black form the backdrop for shocking scarlet-red almost blood-red flowers. Stems are strong and upright. The large, paddle-like leaves grow from stems in long narrow rolls that slowly unfurl. Nectar attracts hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. These exotic beauties are easy to grow and maintain, deer resistant.
