We are so excited by these. Last year, we planted them in the Secret Garden at Old Greenwich School with some PTA members, and they exceeded our wildest expectations. These canna grew very quickly to create an amazing 8’ vertical accent in our containers. The huge, variegated leaves were beautiful and rugged. They looked like variegated banana trees!
They grew well in pretty dense shade, and the plants that got more sun were topped with a sophisticated orange flower that added to their tropical allure. They are not hardy, but the root is very easy to store indoors over the winter, and next year you will have even more!
