I'm looking for some cannas... I remember having them growing up and loved them!  I've had a hard time finding them here in the NorCal Bay Area.  Specifically, I'm looking for the Ace of Spades, Vestarae and Tropicana Black varieties.  I'm hoping since these gorgeous plants also attract hummingbirds, someone in this group may know a reputable place to buy rhizomes or even be willing to share theirs.

i have seen the tropicana black at lowes before
Are they the Tropicana Black or regular Tropicana?
try the bulb lady online.  everything i have gotten from that company has exceeded my expectation. :-)

Here are some links to show what I'm looking for... I think that will make things easier :)

I just searched her online and it doesn't appear that she currently carries the varieties I'm looking for.  I'll have to keep checking back!  I loved the rest of her bulb collection too :)

Peaches 'N Dreams Hollyhock

"I love these hollyhocks, too, Lorraine! Our soil here is also very acid and they seem to do fine. I noticed recently that one of our hollyhock plants has rust on it. Fortunately, they are pretty much done blooming. In early spring, something (a bug…"
