Hummingbird canna

wardw(z6 NJ)April 14, 2005

I need a couple of suggestions of hummingbird attracting cannas for the new Rancocas Nature Center hummingbird garden. My neighbors have a tall unnamed type that's hell on hummers, but the one at RNC needs to have a name. It would also be helpful if it was one that's fairly easy to find - most visiters aren't, shall we say, as 'unbalanced' as those of us who post messages on gardenwebs, who will go to almost any length to acquire something new and exotic.

I highly Recommend Robert Kemp, Skyhawk,Omega,Coccinea or India Prince.All species type Cannas with spikey blooms.Hummers will nearly kill eachother over a large clump of Cannas.Enjoy the show.

Thanks for the tips. I've noticed when my neighbors cannas are going full blast, it's hard to get the hummers interested in anything else, except possibly B&B Salvia.
