Cannas add energy and excitement wherever they’re planted. These lush, tropical plants have big glossy leaves and exotic-looking flowers that are loved by hummingbirds.
Cannas come on strong in late summer and fall when most annuals and perennials are starting to fade. Their bold foliage and brilliantly colored flower spikes keep gardens looking great right until frost.
Cannas can be used to create a living hedge to define an entrance, hide an unwanted view or divide one garden area from another. They are ideal for planting along a fence or near a stone wall. Cannas grow well in soggy soil where other plants may struggle.
- Great in patio containers! A canna can turn a ho-hum pot or planter into a living work of art.
- Enjoys four to six hours of sunlight every day
- Keep soil slightly moist at all times
- Fertilize once a month
- As a bonus, hummingbirds can’t resist canna! This is a great way to lure hummingbirds to your garden, and you’ll enjoy watching them flit from flower to flower.
