Stand in full sun.
Canna 'Cleopatra' combined with other plants
The red and yellow flowers and large green leaves marked in red of the Canna 'Cleopatra' give an enchanting, exotic look to the garden when planted in groups in a border. Try them with Kniphofia Uvaria 'Grandiflora', Yucca Filamentosa and Crocosmia x Crocosmiiflora. Place the Cannas in a sunny area and these tropical plants will feel at home.
Canna 'Cleopatra' is a fast grower and as a result, it needs a lot of feed and water. Make sure the soil does not dry out. Place a saucer full of water underneath the flower pot during hot, dry periods. Feed frequently for good growth and flowering - just add plant food to the watering can.
Canna tubers are easily stored over the winter, just like Dahlia's. From the first frost, dig up (or remove from the pot) and cut back all stems to about 15 cm.
Label the tubers of the variety to remind yourself for the next season. Divide large tubers immediately and shake off excess soil. Keep several shoots per tuber - use a sharp knife!
Place in a box with compost and sand and store in a frost-free area.
Plant out again in the spring but only do so once there are no more signs of frosts. Your Canna will reward you with gorgeous flowers the whole summer through until autumn.
Canna 'Cleopatra' originally grows in tropical regions and flourishes there throughout the entire year. In cooler climes, our Cannas flower from summer well into autumn.
Cannas have their own family - Cannaceae.
