Canna lilies are so dramatic. Their big leaves are so exotic, and the flowers are just ravishing! I drew this canna onto linoleum, cut it out, printed it on Strathmore 500 paper and then colored it with watercolors. It's a dramatic flower, and I have to say, it overpowers all other flowers in my garden! Maybe if I lived in Hawaii, I wouldn't be so shocked with the beauty of canna lilies, but we northern gardeners can't get enough of the color and size of these plants!!
