Product Information

Easier to grow than you may think,  cannas are one of those exotic beauties that swiftly helps to create a bright, zingy summer garden. Their fiery hot colour combinations of yellow, orange and red will erupt throughout your beds and borders, adding great height and impact too.

Each pack of 5 is a mix of colours, and also a mix of the green-leaves and lovely purple-leaved types, selected from taller flowering cultivars, so all will flower at 1m or more.

Renowned for their tall flower spikes, 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.

What Is Supplied

Item 660010 supplied as:
Supplied as a pack of 5 rhizome tubers, to plant shallowly. They can be kept moist and encouraged to sprout by leaving out of soil in a sunny spot, and the new shoots will sprout - then plant where needed.

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. Cannas perform best in semi or full shade, so use these striking plants to transform darker, drier parts of the garden. Purple and striped varieties will fade in the sun

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.
  • While technically they dont have a top or bottom, canna rhizomes (when supplied bare root) can be planted horizontally with the eyes facing up.
  • Cover the rhizomes 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.
