I got 2 - 2 gallon pots of Tropicanna cannas at my local HD yesterday for $12 ea.
I got the same thing at HD a couple of weeks ago. Went back a week later and they well ALL gone!
The two Home Depots in my area usually get several shipments of Tropicanna through the Spring and Summer months.
Work at Lowe's Garden Center, have Tropicanna too. Received 6 2 gallon pots for 12.98 each and its been a week and no one has bought one.........Wish we had your interest here :)
I had never seen a Tropicanna before and I came upon some at my neighborhood Target store-- I fell in love immediately and bought two. I repotted them (one was ready to burst out of its container!) and they're now sitting in a sunny area of my patio. I can't get over how stunningly gorgeous they are-- and no genetic engineering, I don't believe. I paid $12.99 each and they're about two feet tall. I watch them like a hawk because I don't want any pests to bother them.
I love Tropicanna also.
I have been growing it here for about 5 years now. Started with 1 pot - paid $34.99 for a 2 gallon size.
Was a steal because all the ones here for sale are infected with a virus.
Saw them listed in a Rona flyer for $17.88 for 1 gal. I sell my extras for $6 for 1 gal. Helps to pay for my soilless mix costs.
Tropicanna is gorgeous, if you get a healthy one. The big box stores here have Tropicanna and Tropicanna Black, but with dead brown streaks through the foliage. Virus? Or poor care? Either way I won't buy from them.
Bought one for my mother at Home Depot. $12.99ish. Beautiful plant.
