  1. The leaves on this particular canna are attractive and tropical-looking.

    I would suggest, when photographing a canna flower, that a leaf be cut off and placed behind the flower, to showcase both the bloom and the leave characteristics. Some of us are as concerned with the leaf as the flower.
