Is this canna virus ?

I bought these two canna tropicanna/ durban on eBay.

I’ve never grown canna before nor seen this variety so I was surprised to see a green leaf. On further investigation I found it looked very similar to the virus infected image on this website:

any help would be appreciated.

    They look fine. Durban usually has a bit of green in young new leaves. 
  • Thank you.

    I agree. I expect Canna Durban leaves to have a proportion of green stripes.

  • Thanks both.

    I’ve never seen this canna before (admittedly never even heard of cannas until last year!) so I was going off images online and just wanted to check.
