Set your garden a-flame (figuratively speaking of course) with this devilishly decadent-looking dwarf canna. The colours are wickedly awesome!
Cannas are a very popular summer garden plant because they create a real tropical feel and provide not only spectacular flowers but lush foliage as well! They do particularly well in pots and containers. Cannas love full sun but due to their tall height require protection from strong winds. Plant them 12"- 30 cm apart in rich, moist soil and make sure to add generous amounts of compost and manure. In most Canadian zones the rhizomes must be lifted before the first frost and stored in a frost-free place. Clean and divide before replanting.
