Bekkie, they're canna warscewiczii and they grow to about 60cm tall. I almost ordered some online a few weeks ago but , including postage, they worked out at almost £1 per seed.
On holiday in The Gambia earlier this month they were growing in a hotel garden and I asked if I could have some. The boss said " come back tomorrow and I'll have someone pick them for you" Next day he gave me a bag full of approx 500 seeds.
I poured some boiling water over them to sterilise them and brought them home with me.
