My favourite Canna: 'Shenandoah'.

Queen Victoria's favourite as well.

Great dark leaves, but you can _never_ capture with a camera just how unusual and captivating the pink hue is- nothing else like it.

A bugger to grow- needs heat- you can lose one to a cold spell at the drop of a hat.

What I find with a 'disappointing' wet month in early summer is the spin-off,

if you have a small garden where plants often struggle for light:

 

  in a cloudy month, the light levels are lower, but the light is diffused, so it gets into the dark corners,

where direct sun never would.

Consequently, all the edges and underplanting that frame a garden come to life and shows off for once.

This year is their time.

Emerging from the jungle.
The rain has made it go crazy but nice and shaded in the current weather pattern.

Ah yes- but has your, what sounds like a North facing front garden, got a big sky?

Our friend has a newish farmhouse, and the back is North facing, but huge sky.

It's amazing what does well there -  sun-loving stuff I struggle with in my small south-facing back garden.

Big big sky makes things so much easier.

Could be if I drank gin but I'm strictly a beer man and it's ideally shaded for a long cold drink in the evening.😎
