Product Details

Product Details

Large scarlet-red flowers are set off by dark, purplish bronze leaves, making Canna Toucan® Scarlet a bright focal point in the garden.

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.

For more information on growing Cannas, click Growing Guide.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Stunning beauty...

The 2 plants I ordered arrived carefully packed and in amazing shape. I’ve ordered many plants from WFF over the past 15 years and none have arrived looking so hardy and happy. I planted them a few weeks ago (one in a pot and one in the ground [very clay soil]) and they have shot up and each has several new shoots. This canna does not disappoint! I just wish I could upload a photo once they bloom :-/

The best Canna I have ever had. I took awhile but now with multiple blooms, rich foliage. I put it in a Cretan pot which adds to it’s beauty. Why aren’t cannas hardy in Boston?

best plant EVER

I LOVE this canna, I got it last spring to put in my garden and it never made it (unfortunately it was overshadowed by the planting of lilies, petunias and 2 new rosebushes). It was left in its pot on my front porch TOTALLY NEGLECTED I didn't do ANYTHING to this canna, I didn't even water it. I literally neglected it 100%. So I was going to use the pot for something else (or so I thought) and went outside the other day (10/7 or so) to get started and my canna was BLOOMING! 3 huge scarlet red blooms! Definitely cheered up a dreary October morning and what a surprise!! I definitely recommend this plant for a slightly neglectful gardener, because let me tell you I was SHOCKED when this beauty came to life!

Latin Name Pronunciation: can'uh 

Spacing: 18–24″ or 1 per 18″ pot, depth: 2–3″. Full sun.

Wait to plant Cannas until all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to 60°F. To get a jump on a short growing season, start rhizomes indoors by potting up as soon as they arrive and placing in a warm, sunny location. Move them outdoors after the last frost date in your area. Acclimate transplants to outdoor conditions slowly to avoid scorching the foliage.

Plant in average to damp soil. If rhizomes are started prior to planting, they will also grow in soggy soil or even shallow water. Plant the rhizomes horizontally, with the eye (bud) facing up. Fertilize after planting with a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) and again in late July. Remove spent flowers to keep plants looking tidy and to encourage rebloom. Where summers are long and hot, Cannas may grow much taller than indicated on the label. For more compact plants, cut back to the 3rd or 4th leaf (i.e., to a height of about 36″) after each round of flowering.

Cannas are hardy to Zone 7 (0°F). In colder climates, they can be overwintered indoors. After the first frost in fall, cut the stems to the ground and lift the clump of rhizomes with a spade or fork. Store in a dry, well-ventilated place where the temperature is cool (50°-60°F). If plants are grown in containers, you may also allow the pot to dry out and then stored it in a cool location.
