Product Description

Easier to grow than you may think, cannas are one of those exotic beauties that swiftly helps to create a bright, intensely coloured summer garden.

With large, banana shaped leaves, their fiery, hot colour combinations will erupt throughout your beds and borders, adding great height and impact too.

'Tropicanna' produces foliage which is striped in a rainbow of colours with greens, purples, oranges and pinks, creating a dazzling effect that is further enhanced when the orange flowers appear.

Renowned for their tall flower spikes and architectural leaves, grow them in large pots, or at the back of hot-themed borders, in hot, sunny spots, in well-drained areas.

Feed and water well when in growth - they will not start growing much until May, then they romp away quickly as the summer warms.

Cannas will over-winter if they do not get too wet and will benefit from a mulch, or the tubers can be dug up and stored in a cool, frost-free place over the winter for use again next year.

Supplied as a young plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Hold off cutting off old flowers - new flowering shoots come up within the dead flower and, a month or so later, will produce more flowers.
  • Cannas perform best in semi or full shade, so use these striking plants to transform darker parts of the garden.
  • Purple and striped varieties will fade in the sun so provide shade to retain their colours.

Care Guide

  • Water freely in dry spells.
  • Apply a general-purpose liquid feed in midsummer.
  • Little pruning or training is needed, just stake clumps in exposed positions.
  • When a flower spike has no more buds, prune it down to the next side shoot where a secondary flower spike should develop.
  • If temperatures are maintained above 10C (50F) cannas will remain in growth all winter and flower occasionally.
  • Lift the plants in autumn after the foliage has been frosted. Break large clumps into two or three and pot the pieces into 10in (or so) pots. You can then overwinter them in any frost-free shed or greenhouse, keeping them just slightly moist.
  • When the plants start to push up their red shoots in spring, bring them into a light place, water well and protect them from late frosts.
  • By June, growth will be well under way and they can be planted out once more.
