Hi jasonboland,

The large leaved tropicals in the containers are Canna lilies. The green one is Canna 'Bengal Tiger'.
Here's a link for info

The red coloured one is Canna 'Tropicanna'. Here's a link for more info on that variety

Here's a couple of Houzz ideabooks that give you info and ideas

Ideabook: Great Design Plant: Canna 'Pretoria' · See Ideabook
Ideabook: Great Design Plant: Cannas · See Ideabook

I hope this helps!


(PS. I put three plants - 1 gallon size- in each of these containers and fertilized weekly with 15-30-15)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

These generously planted containers sing of abundance. The wonderful mixture of leaf colors and textures set off with the zing of brightly colored flowers takes center stage.

Cannas have lush foliage, but can be top heavy. Try underplanting cannas with low-growing pots to cover up those bare ankles. The plants in the containers are: Lime foliage - Ipomea (potato vine) Purple foliage - Setcreasea Orange flowers trailing - Calibrachoa (Million bells) Purple flowers trailing - Calibrachoa Around the cannas I plant Dahlias (peach coloured ones), Salvia 'Black and Blue', Coleus 'Sedona'.
