I bought those last year from them. Musafolia grande grew large fast and flowered, Russian Red did less well height wise, so it needs more sun...I had it in semi-shade.

I bought seeds of several varieties and they grew well and flowered last year. I just wish I had had the intelligence to have labelled them. I know one was musifolia grande but the leaves didn't get as big as I expected them to. Perhaps I'll have to treat myself to another one.

I was tempted and succumbed...C.Stuttgart, C.Russian Red, C.Grandiose. In my garden canna foliage shreds less in the wind compared to banana,(not that I've removed the Ensete from my to buy list). Cant wait to receive them and get them started!!!! :D
