Key FeatureShowy Flowers

Provide loose, nutrient-rich and well-drained soil. For best performance provide full sun with consistently moist, but not saturated, soil. Cannas thrive in hot humidity! An herbaceous perennial in warmer climates, it may die back with shorter days and cooler nights; in these regions prune to the ground in the fall. Treat as an annual in less temperate regions and remove rhizomes when fall temperatures drop.
