Planting And Care

Cannas do best with a good supply of water, so water the plants during the summer if the rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.

Water freely in a dry spell.

Keep a thin layer of mulch around cannas to help retain moisture as well.

Stake tall varieties if needed.

Woodapple Care

Exotic, tropical creatures, cannas need lots of sunshine and fertile, moist soil but you don’t have to pamper them. Cannas can be started in the house in small pots if your gardening season is short. Where not hardy, plant outdoors in early summer— around the same time you’d put in tomato plants.

Sunlight Full Sun
Watering Medium
Soil Well-drained soil
Temperature 25 to 37 degrees C
Fertilizer Apply any organic fertilizer

Woodapple Special Feature

If you need to lift your cannas, do so right after the first killing frost. Dig one foot away from the stem so that the rhizome (roots that shoot) is not damaged. Loosen the soil and lift out the clump. Shake off the dirt and cut off the tops.
