Red Flowers

This is a Canna Lily. The plant popped up behind the water tanks at some stage and it's been flowering recently.

After some googling around this seems to be a variety of Canna Lily (quite possibly Canna Indica).

    The blossoms look something like the "Bird-of-Paradise." I'll bet this is quite striking in real life.

    Yeah I think an ornamental ginger is probably what it is.
    Not quite. Here's an example of a Bird of Paradise.
