Spectacularly variegated canna Pretoria aka Bengal Tiger offers large chartreuse and cream striped leaves with a purplish red margin. Shades of orange (varying with the seasons) large blooms. Extra gorgeous vividly colored canna. Also called Canna generalis Aureostriata, it is imported from India. It is a sport of Canna Wyoming that originated from radiation experiments in the 1950's at India's Agri Horticultural Society. Considered by many to be the most beautiful of canna lilies. The dramatic stalks of green- and yellow-striped variegated leaves with a brilliant maroon edge grow to 6' and are topped in summer with bright orange flowers that are favored by hummingbirds. Will also grow in water as an aquatic plant. Awarded the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
