BUNGA TASBIH

This was my father's fish pond.
This pond was situated on the backyard.
Could you see...

 

But the pond and the fishes inside were missed  from my attention.
The orange-peach petals of Bunga Tasbih (Canna indica) made me really interested.

 

Look the beautiful color...


There were some Canna clumps on my father's backyard.
Some were grown on the ground, and the other were grown on the edge of  fish pond.


It was an old fashion plant...
A 'country'  flower....


The flower clusters bear here and there, almost all year round.


Look  the petal...
Simple but so beautiful...


I planted this variety on my garden, but the growth did not good enough.
I also planted the yellow and red variety.
Now... please enjoy the beauty.

  1. We can buy all sorts of colours of canna here - some have very variegated leaves but I do prefer the plain red of green leaved ones.

    1. We can find so many varieties on the nurseries here too. Actually, I prefer the red leaved canna.

    2. I like the red leaved ones - its the vivid stripy ones I'm not keen on unless they are grown just for the leaves and the flowers are removed. For some reason it's the flowers and leaves combination I don't like.

    3. You're alright. For me the red leaved canna is much better as a foliage. Green is the best couple for every color of flowers.

    1. Yeah, they love humid soil and rich in organic stuff. But my front yard is a poor and dry soil. I have to add more compost there, also watering more often.
