Introducing Jimmie Jill
Canna 'Jimmie Jill' is a seedling of C. 'Ermine'
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.
Jimmie Jill has wide-open apricot pink flowers.
I recently noticed that Jimmie Jill has a branching flower stem, so that means more flowers on each stalk. Self-cleaning, too, if the humidity is just right.
Jimmie Jill has wavy green foliage.

More Orange From Grackleflap
Grackleflap has small orange flowers.
I really love the foliage of this canna seedling. I want to find out how tall it will grow and if it will create seeds. I've decided to plant him in the pathway garden.
Grackleflap is a 2008 seedling.
