CANNA 'Orange Punch'
Plant Common Name
Canna, Canna Lily, Orange Punch Canna
A compact, upright perennial with fleshy rhizomes (underground stems), ‘Orange Punch’ canna is admired for its long bloom and bright-orange and yellow flowers. The flowers are held above the upright leaves in pendent clusters. The petals are a rich bright orange with a yellowy base that can have specks of orange.
Like most cannas, 'Orange Punch' needs full to partial sun, rich soil, moisture and warmth. It quickly forms an attractive clump in warm climates. In colder regions, the rhizomes are lifted before the first frost of autumn and stored indoors and replanted in the spring when soil temperatures are warm. In milder areas, the rhizomes are hardy in the ground over winter and new leaves emerge in late spring.
Use this canna in mixed beds and borders, wet spots, or ponds for its bold leaves and bright, continuous flowering.
