          I grew Paniculata and Brasiliensis last year and the flowers were very similar, from memory one of them had slightly more yellow in the lower half of the flower :)

                  Only one from me, this is "Kreta", it only grows to about 2ft 6ins but has very large flowers, its good for growing in pots.

                        Most of my Canna flowers have only lasted a day, the bright sun has faded them really quickly. I do have this one growing near a hedge and the extra shade protection has helped produce some lovely blooms, it's Cleopatra:
