I want these two cannas BADLY. Do any of you have experience with growing either? Do you know of a good source for getting them?

You can find a seller on e-bay with them,they seem a little pricey right now to me,much cheaper to buy in fall but difinitely worth it.My C.stuttgart are pushing up there first leaves right now.

Hi Jim,

Did you plant them in ground now or just potted?

Thanks,

Neil

They were grown in a south window over the winter,got leggy and were cut back late Feb,I planted them mid April outside and in the ground,they are doing great and have about 2-3 leaves.

I grew stuttgart for the last several season and I was not impressed. Every year, no matter what I did, this canna experienced lots of leaf burn on the white parts of the leaves.

After last years failed attempt to pamper this plant, I gave up and let the rhizomes succumb to winter freeze.

YMMV
