Canna and Hydrangea Plant Combo Conveys Exotic Ambiance

The red form of Canna musifolia, adds a touch of the exotic with its large, burgundy foliage. This composition looks great for months on end, but really heats up from midsummer onward when Hydrangea serrata 'Preziosa' gets its color on—its flowers become more saturated as they evolve, from pink to magenta to crimson, and its foliage takes on burgundy tones that deepen as the season progresses.
