Canna 'Taj Mahal' Blooms First
'Taj Mahal' has lovely pink flowers with yellow dots in the throat.
Canna 'Taj Mahal' is a simply beautiful canna. This is my first time to see this canna bloom. I got it kind of late last summer. The leaves are shiney medium green. Taj Mahal is supposed to be a medium-height canna, but started blooming when only about 2 feet tall. Right now I am growing this one in a pot. Too much direct Las Vegas sun scorches the white spot and turns it brown. I'm moving it around trying to find the optimal location.
'Taj Mahal' also has a large white or cream blotch on the back of each petal.
