The beautiful blend of yellow and red Cannas looks fantastic in a large planter or window-box. Use pots with holes in the base with a layer of gravel or clay pebbles. Put some potting compost in the pot and plant the Cannas at the right depth. Fill the pot with potting compost and press firmly. Water the Cannas immediately after planting and stand the pot or window-box in a sunny spot.
The warm colours coupled with the green leaves of this Canna mix have an enchanting, exotic look, therefore indispensable in a border that is ‘tropical’ in nature. You can create extraordinary combinations with the Tritoma Grandiflora (kniphofia uvaria 'Grandiflora'), palm lily (Yuca filamentosa) and montbretia (Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora). Provide a sunny spot, so that these tropical plants feel at home.
Canna's are fast growing and as a result, needs a lot of water and food. Make sure the soil does not dry out. Place a saucer full of water underneath the flower pot during hot, dry periods. Fertilize frequently for good growth and flowering by mixing plant food with the irrigation water.
Getting your Canna through the winter
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. 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 night frosts. Your Canna will reward you with gorgeous flowers the whole summer through until autumn.
Cannas originally grow in tropical regions and flourishes throughout the entire year in the tropics. In cooler regions, our Cannas flower from summer well into autumn.
