Orange glow in the garden

Climate Change, Exotic, Plants

The mornings may be getting darker but every day I wake up there is a brilliant orange glow that beckons me into the garden.

It stands out amongst the grey clouds and dull light, creating a memory of sunny days and cloudless blue skies.

Its delicate petals and elegant stem arising from green veined leaves may give you a clue – its the Orange Canna I mentioned in the reply to Karen’s comment on my previous blog.


Does anyone know the name of this variety? I thought it was Canna Wyoming but that has much darker leaves and these are a light green mixed with cream that reflect the light beautifully. Would certainly recommend this for late impact in the garden.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
