We are delighted to offer this exciting new seed-raised compact Canna variety, the result of years of breeding and selection.
'Canasta' is a dwarf canna series, reaching only 80cm or so tall, so is the ideal variety for planting in large patio pots and containers. Canna are a real summer dazzler - their exotic and exuberant coloured flowers are set off by lush, jungle like green or purple/brown leaves, giving a real taste of the tropical, yet they are very tough and hardy.
Canna will form tubers over 2-3 years, so give them space - for huge impact, plant all 6 in a 30cm (12in) diameter pot. Grow in full hot sun when they start growing, which can be later in spring. Feed every 2-3 weeks, and water well, and they will explode into leaf and colour for high summer displays.
