Canna ‘Pretoria’ might be the showiest of all of the variegated cannas. It is one of the best for hot humid sunny southern gardens. It is favored for bright green and yellow variegated foliage and deep tangerine-orange colored flowers. ‘Pretoria’ can grow at the edge of ponds and even in shallow water as well as in normal garden conditions. It is adaptable to heat and humidity. Provide full sun to partial shade and fertile moist or wet soil.
