Description

Spectacular orange blooms rise on stiff, tall stems throughout summer. Even before the blooms emerge, this plant produces a bushy clump of exotic foliage that creates a lush, tropical feel in borders and patio containers. The large leaves of Canna ‘Tropicanna’ are beautifully striped with yellow and green making an unmissable focal point.

This majestic half-hardy perennial enjoys a warm, moist soil – perfect for damp, sunny borders or close to the shallow margins of a pond. Despite its tropical looks, this Indian Shot Plant is easy to grow, and can be lifted in autumn and stored in a frost free position until spring, to ensure a fabulous display year after year. Height: 150cm (60"). Spread: 50cm (20").


Culinary note: Canna lily rhizomes can be eaten raw and have a taste similar to water chestnut, although sometimes bitter. They can also be boiled and baked, the same as a potato and have a similar texture and taste. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Canna plants in frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. In spring, Canna plants can be gradually acclimatised to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting them in borders, beds and containers. Grow Cannas in fertile, moist, well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position.
More Info
Feed and water Canna plants freely throughout the summer. Faded Canna flowers should be deadheaded to promote more flowers. In late autumn, when the first frosts blacken the foliage, the rhizomes should be lifted and stored in barely moist peat, in frost free conditions. Rhizomes can be replanted in spring for another fabulous display.
