Canna Semaphore

OUT OF STOCK
Emanate a rainforest by bringing the Canna Semaphore to your garden this autumn. Large saffron-yellow heads open from an abundance of maroon spikes, from a maroon tube-like stem and surrounded by broad, green-black foliage blushed plum and red. Cannas provide excellent focal points in autumn bedding schemes and are extremely easy to grow. Originating from South East Asia, the Canna prefers moist well-drained soil and full sun, although partial sun is fine. How about planting in a pot next to Bird of Paradise? Or amongst our unusual-looking Designer Hosta Collection? Top quality tubers supplied. Flowers August to October. Height 80cm.

Canna tubers can be planted in April/May at a depth of between 7 and 10cm. They are often best started in pots and then transplanted in borders or beds towards the end of may, requiring a sunny spot out of the wind.
Cannas are renowned for their love of sunny areas and should be watered regularly during warm weather. They can be given a feed once a month and can be dead headed when necessary. The tubers should be lifted and stored indoors after the first autum n frost.
