This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The Grand Opera series cannas are grown for their racemes of peach, pink, or rose flowers rising from towering clumps of huge green leaves. Cannas are easy-to-grow, tropical to sub-tropical herbaceous plants that may be grown as perennials in tropical regions or tender perennials in temperate regions.
Grow these cannas in full sun and fertile soil. Wait until early summer to plant them outdoors. Keep them well watered. Deadhead from the base of the flower stalk to encourage continued blooms. The rhizomes can easily be lifted in the fall and stored indoors for the winter. Plant cannas in the border or as accent plants, wherever you want to add tropical punch. Try them in containers for a dramatic statement.
