Zoom In Photo:

Striking maroon foliage is the darkest among Canna. The large ruffled flowers are red with a hint of orange. Blooms in late summer. Mature height of 4 to 6 feet. Our plants are virus indexed and negative. Cannas offer great tropical foliage and are generally hardy to our temperatures but sensitive to winter wet. In the garden, plant in a well-drained sunny location and mulch with leaves. Cannas are also great in pots. Shelter these in a garage or shed for winter.
