Cannas are so easy to grow, and such a joy once they bloom. The taller variety can make a nice privacy hedge with its tropical looking foliage and brilliant blooms. For the longest time, I resisted the urge to go with any flowers that required bulb lifting. I finally gave in, though. They are so beautiful.
When they get the winter reprieve, it strengthens and gives them the heighth. I took some of my tall canna bulbs with me and planted them in my flower gardens in Florida. They don’t have the freeze to contend with, so they are permanently stationed in the same flowerbed. Yet, they only get a couple feet high, whereas the same family of cannas up north reach the rain gutters of the garage.
To store them, save onion or citrus bags made with netting material. this allows for necessary ventilation. Also it is convenient for hanging in crawl space, or storage shed. In the springtime, dig a shallow hole and replant. They need light on the rhizomes, so don’t plant them very deep. They look good the whole time hey are growing due to the huge foliage, and expect to see brilliant blooms by at least July. Water once a week.
Another nice factor about cannas is sharing. The huge rhizomes keep growing year after year, giving the opportunity to share with neighbors and friends.
