I am uploading a few pictures of canna which is blooming at our place these days. the leaves are variegated, and it is in glory only in late evenings. In the morning also it looks fresh, but loses its sheen as the day goes by. Petals are delicate and thin to touch. The flower lurking in the background is cestrum nocturnum.
Best wishes,

Canna is blooming at my place these days. This variety (it has variegated leaves) is in full glory by late evening, and in the morning, and is not the same by the evening. he petals are wafer thin and delicate to touch.The buds lurking in the background are of Cestrum nocturnum (Raat ki Raani).

Your Canna is a horticultural one. It is cultivated for beautiful
flowers and leaves, sometimes variegated. There are a large no. of
horticultural varieties. Wild Canna, (C. indica ,Syn. C. orientalis),
has small finger like flowers. Interestingly , indica or orientalis
are both misnomer, as it comes from S. America (needs confirmation).

Sibadasji: I presume by horticultural variety you mean developed by man, and not fully natural(=wild).

hello, The photgraphs are really nice.
The delicate petals that you have mentioned in the flower are actually the sterile stamens called staminodes the staminodes become petal like called petaloid stamens . here the petals are absent. instead there is a perianth outer calycine perianth and inner corolline perianth.
