!st year flowers

Hi I hope you can help me here. I bought a couple dozen Cannas this past spring. They did not flower. If I dig them up and store them for the winter, will they flower next year? I was in hopes of getting a lot of seeds to expand this area of our daughters memorial garden. If they are not going to put on flowers, I need to figure something else.

Typically all our hybrid garden cannas should bloom in your growing area by mid to late summer if basic growing conditions are met. Planting date and sun requirements may be a factor.
Do you know the name of the cultivars you planted? Keep in mind that not all our hybrid cannas produce viable seed and the seedlings will not likely be a clone of its parent. By storing and dividing your plants you should be able to rapidly expand your garden.

last year I bought a couple of Bird of Paradise, they too never bloomed nor got taller than 3 feet!
...they grew very wide very fast but never bloomed :(
