Canna Lilies

(Question)

Hi, I have been on the look-out for different coloured canna Lilies. I have only been able to find the standard red or orange and wondering where I can find other varieties and colours to purchase in Canada.

(Answer)

Yes, Cannas are fabulous plants and more and more people in Canada are using these tropical plants, grown from rhizomes,  to add some show and some exotic colour to their gardens. As they are not hardy to our growing zones though they must be brought indoors over the winter, if they are to be used again next season. I have attached a very comprehensive previous response. which will provide all of the information that you need on growing them, overwintering them and the various varieties available in Canada.  That said many reliable nurseries and online bulb companies offer a wide variety of Cannas.

I hope that your garden is a show stopper next year!
