RE: WANTED: Canna Seed

Hi
I do have canna seeds .. however, the seeds do not come true to the plant .. they never do. Its just fun to see just what you might get from them. If you are looking for specific colors then seed is not the way to go .. purchase some rhizomes that are the colors you are seeking. Cannas from seed can bloom the first season but not always and they tend to be very small the first year but will grow to there mature size the following year. Most of the seed babies will turn out to be red .. but others will come out with with the desired colors .. its a crap shoot at best. Here are some pictures of some of my seed babies from a few years ago.
