Cannas are tropical and subtropical bulbs from the Americas that are invaluable to the garden in summer and autumn. The flowers range from complex and colorful to simple and subtle, and their large leaves grow from 4–10′. Provide a warm spot in the sun (at least half a day) and regular watering. Rhizomes may be dug to spend winter indoors in cold climates.
