Canna get a witness?

Allen456(8)April 11, 2013


I thought Tropicanna Gold would work in the roadside "ditch" out front. After fighting back an infestation of leaf-rollers and a late freeze I gave up on them last year.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a canna that can handle full sun and an occasional inch of standing water? I can keep them watered during dry spells.

Leaf rollers was the reason I gave up on cannas; yet I've seen people that have no trouble with them.

We have the plain, old super tall red flowering cannas. They get leaf rollers but they still flower like crazy, so we don't worry much about it. I don't know of any cannas that are resistant to leaf rollers.

Hey GGG I have the same tall red ones.

This year I saved seeds from LAST YEAR and some of them had cross pollinated with the ORANGE TYPE that you see around libraries and such.

ALso, I know it's the humming birds.. CAnnas are GREAT FOR HUMMING BIRDS!

But tall 5 feet wall of boom :)
