    2 responses

Just wanting to clarify this plant.
I know it is Canna Edulis but I have seen people advertising as Canna Edulis "ROJO" due to the red leaves I just want to know what is correct?

These days, no-one bothers with the correct naming of plants, which involves italics and underlining in a sequence which I have totally forgotten, but the correct way to write that plant name for internet use would be Canna edulis "rojo". Most books still put the Genus (Canna) in italics with a capital letter, the species (edulis) in italics, small letters, and the cultivar or variety (rojo) in quotes, sometimes bold but small letters only.

I cannot work out how to underline or italicise on most internet systems anyway.
