This bronze-leaf Canna lily makes an amazing display for patio containers and mixed borders. The tower of bright golden orange flowers appears mid-summer above dark, tropical looking foliage that can reach 75cm (30") tall. These are tropical plants, so the rhizomes need to be lifted in the fall and stored over winter in a frost-free environment. They can be grown in full sun to partial shade and they are deer resistant.
One rhizome per package.
Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
