(syn: Canna 'Feuerzauber') We've grown a lot of purple-foliaged cannas but never anything like this. The deep burgundy-black, tropical-looking foliage of Canna 'Australia' has a satin-like sheen and the intense color holds superbly during the summer heat. The foliage of Canna 'Australia' rises to 4-5', topped with a magnificent display of large, shocking red flowers...a true stunner and hummingbird magnet. Thanks to canna guru Johnnie Johnson for sharing this coveted gem he first brought into the US from New Zealand.
