Cannas are an easy addition to your perennial garden. They love sun, but can take partial to full shade. They may grow 3-6 feet tall. Vivid red, yellow, or orange blooms appear from mid-summer to first frost that are ideal for attracting pollinators. Attractive burgundy to lime green colored foliage as well as beautifully variegated foliage also lends your garden interest all summer long.
Cannas are greedy feeders. Provide regular fertilizer to keep them blooming or introduce a slow release. Keep soil moist during their flowering season. Dead heading spent blooms also promotes additional blooming.
