Canna Shipping

buckeyefaninfl(Z9 Wesley Chapel, FL)July 11, 2006

I am going to be sending a couple of dwarf cannas cross country via USPS. Is it better to ship them with the leaves cut off and just the rhizome or should I leave the leaves on?

I have done it both ways. Right now it is very hot, so I think I would cut them off. They grow back quickly. When I send the leaf, they are small and I wrap them in newspaper. You can send a lot more just sending the rhizomes.
