Your Daily Dose of Natural Beauty, courtesy Advertiser Zenith Holland Nursery – Canna Lillies for tropical looking drama:
This stunning Canna Lily flames bright in red, but you can also enjoy other “hot” color varieties such as orange or yellow in this high-impact bloomer. The bulbs should be planted at least a foot apart, and you’ll see why when they grow to 3-4’ tall. Some folks like to use them as screening due to their estimable height.
Another advantage to Canna Lilies are their long-blooming appeal. Properly watered (they like to be moist) and given a monthly fertilizer feeding, you can expect to enjoy vibrant color all summer long. In our region, many gardeners overwinter the plants in pots or lift the bulbs before frost and store them in a cool dry place for spring re-planting.
These stunning and large garden dazzlers prefer full sun and will reward you with lush leaves and bright flowers, though if absolutely necessary they will tolerate partial shade. Try massing them in a group planting for incredible impact.
