lovely leaves in crimson and violet

I wish I could tell you the name of this plant. It has broad leaves that unfurl from the center. The plant has a bit of a tropical flair to it. I secretly snapped some photos of my grandmother's garden recently for use in a future Christmas gift and this was one of her fine specimens.


  1. It looks like a canna to me. I think they usually have a red or orange flower on top.

  2. That could be – it sounds familiar. There weren't any flowers on it at the moment. I can't ask her or she'll know I was sneakily photographing her garden! Ha!
