Canna are wide spread across the tropics and are cultivated in many temperate gardens. Although commonly referred to as a Lily they are not Lilies, but are the sole members of their own genus, Cannaacea and are related to Bananas and Gingers. In the tropics they are frequently grown for the food value of the tubers, however here we use them for their huge, tropical, beautifully coloured leaves. Some of the latest cultivars, such as the Tropicana series, have also been bred for their exotic and colourful flowers. A superb summer garden plant for border or patio, that can be kept from year to year if the tubers are protected from frost and wet. Best lifted, cleaned and stored in a dry, cool, frost free location with just a little moisture. Canna Tropicanna has splendid, striped orange and green waxy foliage with wavy edges, throughout each leaf, beautifully topped off from June to September with distinct soft orange flowers. This plant can be used as a specimen, in groups, in a mixed planting or in a container. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 5-6 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. Please Note: These are not plugs or dry tubers. They are well established plants propagated by tissue culture.
