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'
Ideabook: Great Design Plant: Cannas

I hope this helps!


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

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'.
