1 litre pot
Canna 'Wilma' flowers well all summer, she has beautiful peachy-tangerine coloured blooms which contrast so well with the dark foliage. This variety of Canna is part of the 'Happy' series, it's certified virus free and like all the happy series Canna, is a compact and bushy variety suitable for the front of the border, pots or widow boxes. This is a great Canna for mixing with other summer flowering perennials such as Dahlia.
Canna love the sun but will take a little shade throughout the day, they also love a rich, moisture retentive soil. Do not despair if you go on holiday, they also hold water very well and are amazingly drought tolerant. Give your canna a liquid feed every two weeks and they will love you forever!
Treat like a Dahlia in so far as you can either lift and store the rhizomes dry over winter or if you are in a milder part of the country, you can leave in situ with a thick layer of mulch over the top or pop a plant pot over the crown for the winter.The just need to be kept frost free and on the dry side.
