Will it be too wet in a small bog garden to plant Canna rhizomes? I don't know the variety as I got them at a yard sale. The rizomes looked healthy with a purpilish color to them.

My bog area is about the size of a bathtub with cat tails and shrubs from a wetland in there now. And a smattering of other prairie type plants on the fringes.

I've seen canna growing in streams directly. I'd say plant the canna in the bog no deeper than you'd plant the canna in regular soil, and it should be just fine!
