"Bangkok indian Shot" or "Pretoria Canna" Spectacular garden canna cultivar forming dramatic clumps of brightly striped green and butter yellow leaves topped by heads of large orange flowers. Blooms in winter greenhouse as has no real dormancy cycle. We suggest to those interested in research that a quick look in the important tome, "Gardening in india," will prove that C. generalis 'Striatus' was long grown in India before exported to Pretoria where it was "rediscovered" by nurserymen unfamiliar with the specimens already present in the U.S. trade. Henry Ross was wise to resolve the confusion by declaring it to be the remarkable 'Bengal Tiger' it just is.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
