Unknown Canna +Point and Shoot
Two Subjects....Unknown Canna and using 2 different cameras.
In 2007 I bought a few different canna seeds from Karchesky Canna and grew them.
I'm only showing you 2 different ones....you'll see why.
These came with 'Pixie' seeds but aren't the correct cannas.
Unknown shorter than others and very prolific.
Used a 'Point and Shoot' back in 2007.
Also started these from seed 2 years ago.
Saved seeds from all cannas in 2007 but decided to grow only the unknown cannas
this year because they were so prolific and only stood about 3 to 4 feet.
I like the shorter ones.
NOW LOOK WHAT I GOT !!
My guess is a cross pollination of the two.
I wrote the seed company and Alice Harris agreed
about the cross pollination and said it also may be latent genetics.
Even though I still have more seeds left over from the 2007 unknown(Now a NEW plant)
I'll save seeds from these new ones and keep them separate for the future.
This pic was taken with my $150.00 Point and Shoot Canon Power Shot a590.
Just set it on 'auto' and shoot...pretty good !
Here's a closer view.
This pic also was taken with my 'Point and Shoot'.
Can't complain about a 'point and shoot' camera.
You can see how tall they are. Have 5 plants in the yard.
No place to store rhizomes with proper temperature over winter...
so I'll start from seed again. It's soooo easy !
