OTHER: Cannas are very easy to grow, and this is one of the few varieties of cannas that is not a hybrid. Cannas offer both very attractive foliage and flowers. They will give you an excellent tropical effect, and the slender blooms are a magnet for HUMMINGBIRDS and butterflies. Cannas are native to the tropics and subtropics but if you live in an area with cold winter temperatures, you can simply lift and store the tubers to enjoy them again next season. The plants I started from seeds have made nice house plants (they look great in containers!) and they will flower the first year if placed outdoors. These plants really divide. I planted 5 bulbs the year before and dug up 12 in the fall. This year I had over 25. Alternately, the tubers can be dried and ground for baking or eaten raw or cooked. Additionally, you can even scarify the seeds and start them in a jar full of water and hydrogen peroxide. The dried hard seeds are cherished by musicians for their use in shakers, and the seeds are also used as beads. The seeds are said to live for over 600 years and will sprout, even after going through wildfires. Cannas are an all around winner!

Received 4 instead of 5. Minor thing, but these are decent sized seeds. I understand you can't count out 100 poppy seeds, but this seems like a bit careless. However, planting them seems quite good. I scraped 4 sides with a knife, soaked in water overnight, and put all 4 into a 6-inch pot together. Put a white plastic grocery bag over the pot and put the pot on the porch. I live in Haiti, and it's rainy season now, for reference. Temps are 70s at night, 90 or so mid-day. After 24 hours one was uncurling. Another day, 2 more are up and all are about an inch high. The 4th isn't waking up yet, but overall, I'm pleased. Update: about a week after planting, there appear to be 2 different varieties. One of the seedlings has bright green foliage, the other two are red-tinged. Just to be aware. Doesn't bother me.
