Like her kindred spirit ‘Mme. Casaneuve’ is sensual, ethereal, lovely, and rare. In his 1909 Das Geschlecht der Canna, Árpád Mühle praised her ‘luxurious’ bronze foliage and ‘large, flesh-pink’ flowers shaded with apricot and gold. Returned from France. One look and I fell in love 3-5 feet. (1, $8.25 – 10, $61)
