Frequently asked in interviews why he focuses on trees and bushes rather than planting perennials and flowers, Penderecki patiently responded that this was the natural order of creating a park and that seasonal adornments would come in due time. He made some exceptions, though. Among the most spectacular ones are the cannas of the ‘Wyoming’ variety which decorate the alley leading to the great labyrinth.
This two-metre-tall ornamental bulbous plant not only grows to an impressive size but also provides an interesting coloristic contrast between the claret-coloured leaves and the orange flowers. Cannas are native to both Americas.
