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.
