The plants are very large and grow up to 6 feet tall. They will attract attention to any garden whether planted as an accent or in a mass planting. They have large colorful flowers and tropical appearing foliage. Their striking brightly colored flowers make them an excellent choice for a border grouping, and their tropical feel works well in pool-side gardens.
Garden Canna prefers sunlight to light shade and soils with high organic matter. They grow best in moist, well-drained soils, but can tolerate some standing water or drought once they are established. They have a high heat tolerance.
In warm climates, the rhizomes may be left in the ground over the winter. In areas with freezing temperatures the rhizomes should be lifted from the ground for winter storage. They should be stored in peat or vermiculite in a cool dry space.
These seeds are rare and in limited supply.
Type: Annual or perennial, frost tender
Height: Up to 2 meters, approximately 6 feet
Location: Sun or part sun
Hardiness zones: 10-11, elsewhere dig and store tubers for the winter
Seeds per pack: 3 Large seeds
Germination: The hard seed coating must be chipped or sanded to initiate germination. This can be done using a nail clipper, clipping a very small section, until a small amount of white begins to show. Careful, the seeds like to slip away, and clipping can take some patience. Then, place the seeds in water for 48 hours. Plant just in a container, just below the soil level. As the plant grows, and plant outside when the weather permits, after the change of frost and cold weather are far gone. Over the summer the plants will form a tuber. If you live in a cold region, the tuber can be dug up and stored in a cool place for the winter.
