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 Black' produces an extremely dark and dramatic, almost black foliage that will create a dazzling effect that is further enhanced when the scarlet red 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 rhizome rhizome can be dug up and stored in a cool, frost-free place over the winter for use again next year.

Supplied as an established plant, in a 9cm pot, ready to plant.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Remove the dead flowers to encouage continued flowering, but leave them to die back in the autumn.

Care Guide

  • Plant in a sheltered position in full sun during late spring, once the risk of frost has passed.
  • Water freely during dry weather.
  • Plant in fertile, moist and well-drained soil.
  • 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 once more.
