Longest Row of Cannas

This is about the longest stretch of cannas grown in Kuching. It is about 200 m in length and planted with three colourful shades of cannas -red, yellow and orange. The building in the center of the picture belongs to the Kuching City North. Cannas belong to the broad family of bananas and ginger in that they have rhizomes. Over centuries, they have been cross-breeded and now many hybrids are available having varied colours and mixture. Cannas love the open sun and require heavy manuring and removal of spent leaves or stems if they are to exhibit their true colours and bright appeal.
