Canna bed showing signs of life
I chanced it last fall and kept my cannas in the ground covered with about a foot of leaves. If you look close, you'll see shoots to the left of the hostas. As far as I can tell, all my cannas seem to have survived the winter although it was really mild this year so maybe I was lucky. I only uncovered them because I saw new growth poking above the leaves. Lets hope mother nature keeps things on the warm side from now on.
