Is my Canna ok?

I got wyoming which looks ok to me. But pretoria not so much, I hoping it hasn't got a virus. Some of leaves are not striped at all, new shoots look like they maybe striped. Both are still in old compost which I stored them in over winter,  I have only feed them once a few weeks ago. They had poor light conditions from mid February through most of March which I originally thought why the leaves lacked strips. I take them to the GH and bring them back in the house overnight now.

    Would the cold weather damage them in the GH ? Its not heated and still gets below zero regularly. I normally start hardening tender plants midish May for planting out late may / early June. 

    I think I am just over worrying, I keep an eye on pretoria and see how it does.

    I don't tend to worry about plants - they either grow or they don't heheimage

    Sadly, both of these plants look virused to me.

    Both look ok. to me, and I have plenty to compare them with.
