I'm usually pretty good at finding the flowers name but this exotic has me stumped. I'm sure someone can name it. It was the flower bed at the library. The photos were taken in the Fall with the flower at full bloom. It was at least four feet (1.3 meters) tall .
Titania was the first to name it a Canna sometimes called a Canna Lily although not a true Lily.
It has an unusual and colorful red bloom. I think I have it captured well enough for an ID.
