Description
Australia has dark foliage and red flowers; perfect illusion of shade in the garden; 48"-60" winter hardiness zone 7-10; tuber.

Big bold and colorful with heights ranging from 2'-10' the Canna is one of the most versatile and cost effective perennials for the southern garden. They flower in the heat of mid-late summer when many other plants give out. These lush plants reminiscent of the banana give areas of the garden the mysterious and romantic feeling of the tropics while they actually take on the role of the summer garden 'bones' and backdrop. The smaller cultivars however fit in nicely in the middle of the garden among other perennials and are excellent centerpieces for patio planters. With lance-shaped leaves of green burgundy and even multi-colored stripes along with flowers of bright red yellow coral and multi-colors the possibilities are endless as to where and with what combinations cannas can be planted. Responding to ample moisture full light and rich soil they are even happy planted in a pot submerged in a pond; they can be considered 'cut and come again plants' if their leaves become damaged during the growing season; Grade #1 tuberous rootstocks; plant 10 - 18" apart; whz 7-10; treat as an annual or container plant starting indoors with bottom heat in zone 3-6 because they hate cool soil! (NOTE: 'Self-cleaning' means that they drop their spent flowers without assistance.) Note: Because of the virus in many cannas in years past our list is smaller because we are only offering ones we feel are virus-free which include 'virus-free' tissue culture plugs that we are growing here.
