No, not canna lily. Try ornamental ginger in google images.

Thanks for the responses. Ornamental Ginger is a close resemblance to the plant. We purchased it about 3 years ago at Home Depot but it did not survive the cold weather. We also lost the information that contains the plant name and how to care for it.

I think it's a tropical plant that's found somewhere in Florida.

Luv4horses, you were correct in stating the plant was from the ginger family. I found it a few minutes ago and it's called a curcuma alismatifolia. It's grown in Taiwan. Only a few thousand miles from Florida. Thanks for point me in the right direction.

I would have guessed ginger also. Used to have some in my garden and wish i hadn't gotten rid of it.

Yes, curcuma is really pretty, and grows nicely into masses when planted outside. But it won't survive cold weather. My daughter in Jacksonville, FL lost all of hers when their weather dipped into the high 20's last winter.

I might try some here in Venice, FL. Our low this last winter was 38.
