Product Information

Cannas are exotic beauties that help to create a dazzling summer garden.

Their extravagant fiery hot colour combinations will erupt throughout your beds and borders, towering above banana shaped leaves adding great height and impact.

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

Feed well when in growth - they will not start growing much until May, they grow away quickly as the summer warms.
They 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.

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.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your cannas:

  • Cannas can be planted outdoors or containers. During spring, before planting the canna lily, wait until all threat of frost has passed.
  • Groups of cannas should be planted about a foot or two apart.
  • Cover the corms with 3 to 6 inches of soil.
  • Water well and apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture.
  • Potted plants can be planted straight out where they are to flower.


Aftercare advice for canna lilies:

  • Water freely in dry spells.
  • Apply a general-purpose liquid feed in midsummer.
  • 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.

Pruning advice for cannas

  • 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.
