Longtime lurker here and I really appreciate all the advice and wisdom that you share. I live in central Alabama and have had cannas in the ground for many years. Should I be concerned that I haven't seen any signs of life yet -- or is it still a little bit early?

RE: Cannas

I live in Southern Cullman Co. Mine are just now starting to poke their heads up.

RE: Cannas

Thanks for the reply. I'm in Cullman County too -- I'll just try to be patient a little longer.

RE: Cannas

Well, I'm in Mobile, and mine are up about a foot. They are looking pretty healthy, but I doused them with Sevin dust anyway. Those leaf curler thingys can sure make them look a mess.

My favorite Phaesion is in a big pot, and it looks great. The other striped canna, Praetoria or is it Bengal Tiger, it has spread during the winter, and I have several small shoots coming up as far away from the original plant as 2 feet. I hope the clummp will look great by late summer.

I was working in the front beds today, did not get around to the one in my circle driveway, where all the day lilies and other cannas reside. Maybe tomorrow.

RE: Cannas

I live in Jefferson County. I have Cannas in two areas of my yard and they have already come up. Although eight out of nine of my banana plants are showing no signs of life. This is making me sick.
