Garg ji and Gurucharanji:

Recently the Kol Bot Garden had planted several cultivars... we visited... not photographed since Canna is so common in West Bengal...  a few flowerheads were similar to what you just showed...


Top tropicals site shows something close to your picture ... and named it Canna X generalis Fire Red ,
it at URL: http://toptropicals.com/catalog/uid/canna_indica.htm

Regards, Usha di
