Very hard to say, the first new leaves that emerge always look manky. If in any doubt, torch 'em....with those manly chairs of yours

Where did you get them? Are Hart Cannas currently virus free? I'd given up with cannas, but if Hart sell clean specimens I might try a few.

It looks a bit suspect.

It doesn't look good Barry.

I saw a whole display of virused cannas at a garden centre on Friday (wish I'd had my camera) I cant believe suppliers are still shipping them and garden centres are accepting them. Well I can, it's called greed :x
