Canna indica, commonly known as Indian shot, African arrowroot, edible canna, purple arrowroot, and Sierra Leone arrowroot, is a perennial flowering shrub with edible, ornamental and even toxic wastewater treatment uses. A tall, broad leaved shrub that produces quaint, deep orange blossoms that give way to striking large shiny round black seed pods that resemble shotgun pellets and were supposedly used as an ammunition substitute in the Indian Rebellion of 1857. 120 days from seed to flower production. Perennial.
