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 also cherished by musicians for their use in shakers. The seeds are said to live for over 600 years and will sprout, even after going through wildfires. Cannas are an all around winner!
