Canna Seed Pod

buckeyefaninfl(Z9 Wesley Chapel, FL)April 25, 2006

Can anyone post a picture of a canna seed pod? I have been researching the past posts to try and identify if my cannas produce seeds or not. I haven't been able to tell by observation of the canna. I bought them from Home Depot as a 'Dwarf Canna' for $2.50.

Here's a link of some seeds in a pod.

Even if your canna came with a name, I wouldn't count on it being correct. They often have mislabeled cannas.

Wow, what a great web site. Thanks Jenna.

It looks like mine produce the outer pod, but with no seeds in them.

They often do that. You have to feel each pod to find out if there's actually anything in it!

Hi,
You may already know this but you can take a q-tip and collect the pollen from the flowers and as you go from one flower to another you'll be pollinating each of them. They will produce seeds after that.
