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. :-)
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 :)

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

"Elizabeth, I use chicken manure "tea" to keep it so green and the bugs don't like it either. About every 3 weeks seems to be enough."

"It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find."

"You have a wonderful garden Loraine, once again I see the natural woods in the back, fire must be a bit of a concern for you in a dryer area."
