Cannas are easy-to-grow, tropical to sub-tropical herbaceous plants that originate from tropical North, Central and South America.
In temperate zones (4-7), they may be dug and brought into a cool, dry garage or basement to overwinter and then planted again in spring after the last frost date.it needs to be hold in cool inside overwinter. In Warm climate zones (8-11) it is grown as perennials or tender perennials, these ornamentals offer bold, often colorful, foliage and showy lily-like flowers that come in shades of red, yellow, orange, salmon, pink or rose. The flowers appear in clusters atop stiff upright stems and attract hummingbirds.
Cannas are amazingly adaptable. They prefer full sun to partial sun and rich moist to wet soil but can be surprisingly drought tolerant if faced with a bout of dry weather. Plants are borne from thick fleshy rhizomes that transplant and divide easily.
Use these in containers, waterside gardens or as focal points in any bed or border. Though tolerant of wet soils, they will not tolerate deep standing water.
