This flower grows in a friend's yard in Houston TX. It's a small tree/bush with these beautiful orange flowers. Any idea of what is it. Thanks Shirley

Canna

And just in case there's any confusion, the canna is not related to the foliage behind it (despite the red and purple colors they share), but to the pointed leaf-tip in the lower right corner of the photo.

I wouldn't call it a small tree ... but then I've never seen how they grow in Texas.

ETA: I meant that I wouldn't call a canna a small tree, and I've never seen how large cannas might grow in Texas.
