Canna Louis Cottin

Canna Louis Cottin

OUT OF STOCK
Bring a look of the tropics to boring patios and decking with the Canna Louis Cottin. Large amber yellow heads open from an abundance of spikes, surrounded by broad, green-black foliage blushed plum and red. Cannas provide excellent focal points in summer 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. We recommend Calla Lilies if you want your landscape to take on the ambience of a tropical resort, and Freesia if you are looking to give your garden a sweet fragrance. Top quality Rhizomes supplied. Flowers July to October. Height 60cm.

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 autumn frost.
