Warm, sunny day...bit breezy.
Was going to post a picture of canna in flower but no smilies or toolbar to enable.
And Canna Tropicanna Black planted earlier this year has the most massive dark purple/brown/black leaves ...clearly it has the capacity to be huge.
Woken at 4 am for emergency chauffeuring duties....niece's fall out with boy friend meant muggins here lost his beauty sleep. Then 90 minutes hearing how bad the world is......(tired, grumpy smilie).

have I killed it?

B3, its a pretty tough "grass". Invasive here too. I would be surprised if you lost it.
I would dig up a piece of it, tidy it up with a slight haircut, and pot it up. Water it well. One of the few freshly potted up plants that I would then leave in fhe sun.

Morning Fairy,
Limelight is brand new for me....bought over last winter. However, as I understand it that lime colour (that I love) will turn to white and stay white for weeks. I think, not sure though, that it will only take on pinkish shades in late autumn if it gets cold.
I also planted Kyushu at same time....this looks wonderful I think. Pure white and slightly more delicate. I think this will be my favourite.
Both currently around 4 or more but in future will be over 6'.
Now, now Fairy. My new underpants are a sore point right now.......an itchyness is as far as I will go..don't want to talk about it......(red faced smilie)

Switching from basic to advanced editor and back again on a now regular basis is a nuisance.
Ok, may be a free forum but this needs to be sorted asap.
