Banana Canna If you are into the tropical look, don't miss growing the large and tall banana canna. The 12-14' tall stalks are home to extremely large, banana-like leaves, each green with a purple-red border. While Canna 'Musafolia' rarely flowers, the flowers produced are small, red, and really pale in size compared to the foliage. This is a great canna if you're looking to make a statement in the garden.
