Do I cut cannas back in Winter?
I am new to Texas and I have brought my cannas down here with me from Michigan. Obviously, I don't have to dig them up anymore, thank God!
Anyway, Houston will usually get a good freeze that will kill all the foliage, but it might not happen this year, as it's getting warmer already.
More than half of the leaves are still green and healthy. There are even flowers still!
Normally I would just cut them all back, but the 3 or 4 tubers I brought down here 3 years ago have become probably close to 200. What can I say, they like Houston.
So I don't want to go to that much trouble if I don't need to.
On the other hand, last Summer Houston had the the worst drought in recorded history. (over 100 years) Even with my vigilant watering and Miracle Gro they all topped out about 2-3 feet shorter than they should have been.
If I don't cut them back, will they stay stunted?
