my canna flowers

I'm in love with their flowers. I wish the earlier flowers were not eaten by the japanese beetles. I will take care of them next year very well. :)

The flowers from the canna that artictropical gave are gorgeous!

And this is the one I bought at Lowes for 10 cents last fall. Only 2 made it out of 21. Wrong overwintering technique. :(

RE: my canna flowers

I'm curious if you collect those seed pods.

RE: my canna flowers

Yep. I will but I still don't know how to identify when they're ready. I will be winter sowing the seeds next year.

RE: my canna flowers

The pods will split and you will be able to see the seeds inside when ready. Look at them every day if possible. The pods on mine are green and turn black when ready. They also get kind of dry and crispy.
