Cana Lilies

in #sptlast year

I was noticing the cana lilies outside today. They have very vibrant colors in both red and yellow. pqry5itwb2.jpg
I did not know much about them so I did some research to find out more about them. They originate from south and central America as well as parts of florida.wlft6c6rzf.jpg
They are hermaphrodite plants which is interesting. They have rhizomes for roots, but also produce seeds that are very dense. The seeds are grown in these spikey seed pods.

The seeds have a pretty consistent weight and have been used as measuring weights in the past. I also learned that the seeds are very hard; have been used as jewellery and also as shot for guns. Overall they are a really pretty plant.
