Design IdeasWith their exotic foliage, cannas are the darlings of the tropical garden even when located in more temperate climates. They are outstanding in containers that allow for winter cold protection. The plants are superior accents around water gardens and are a natural since these are technically marginals and will grow in standing water. They are also outstanding single specimens against contrasting backgrounds whether hard scape or dense foliage.
