Canna, ‘Mixed’ assortment

Cannas are an exotic summer flowering plant with large broad leaves. Our vibrant mixture will have a range of flower and foliage colors to brighten up your summer border or pot display. Like Dahlias, once in flower they seem to flower forever throughout the summer to October and can be kept for years. Simply lift and dry the rhizomes and store in peat or sand indoors.

Cannas bring a touch of the tropics to wherever they are planted. These exotic looking plants are indispensable for a splendid summer border bursting with drama. Their size, bright, showy flowers, and foliage patterns ensure that your Cannas will stand out. Makes a great centerpiece in bedding schemes and large containers. As soon as a stalk has finished blooming, remove it and a new one will take its place. If faded flowers are not removed, seeds will form and flowering will cease.
