Taj Mahal took off like crazy this fall. She must have appreciated the cooler temperatures! Thinking back, she was the first to bloom in the summer as well. These pictures are from December 1, 2008.

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.
