The Canna Lily or Heliconia is a tropical plant with leaves resembling those of a banana tree (long, oval leaves with a pointed tip). It originates from tropical regions of Asia and America.

There are several varieties of canna lily including:
“Lucifer” (deep red with a yellow edge),
“Firebird” (scarlet),
“Confetti” (yellow speckled with orange dots).

Its flowers resemble that of an orchid and its colourful blooms light up the campsite (and of course your holiday!).

The canna lily doesn’t have traditional roots. Like bamboo, it has rhizomes and spreads quite easily.


Where to find it at the campsite
You’ll find canna lilies at our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette® on Place de la Pascalinette (nr. 1 on the plan) and at the Jardin du Levant (nr. 22).
