first time growing...

herbalflower(8b FL)April 14, 2006

and I would like to grow some cannas along one part of my fence line but before I plant I need to know how far down their roots will grow. My water line is in that area and is only about 3' down. Thanks for the help.

They root very shallowly. You only plant them about 2 inches deep and then their roots may go another 6 inches at most. Mine stay near the surface. You shouldn't have any problem around your water lines.
