Canna (Canna hybrida)
Canna Plant FeaturesAdd bold color and drama to flower beds or containers with canna lilies. These easy-care tropical bulbs are prized for their super-sized leaves in bright green, bronze, black, or variegated. Plus, cannas shoot up showy stalks of yellow, red, salmon, orange, pink, or bi-colored blooms in mid to late summer that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Cannas are sun-loving tropical plants that thrive in hot, humid conditions. They have few insect or disease problems and are available in standard forms that can grow 5 feet tall and dwarfs that grow just 2 feet tall. In colder regions, cannas need to be dug up and stored over the winter. Hardy from zones 7-11.

Canna Growing InstructionsPlant cannas in a sunny spot with rich, slightly moist soil. Place standard canna varieties in the back of your border where they won't block your view of smaller plants and use dwarf types at edge of the flower bed or in large tubs or planters. Cannas are heavy feeders so apply a dilute solution of liquid fertilizer every week or two. And, try not to let the soil dry out. Cannas like moisture so much they'll thrive in the shallows of a water feature.
