I want to name this canna after my sister-in-law, Jill Hill Forbes Fisher. She passed away in 2002. This canna flower is one of her favorite colors and Jill would have loved its playful look.

Another orange seedling! I like this one very much! The soft orange flowers are about 3 inches across. It seems to be a dwarf with lightly wavy green foliage.
