Green leaved Canna

There are lots of beautiful Canna varieties which have green lush foliage and varying colours of bright, bold flowers. Canna plants are an essential addition to the hardy exotic garden, their large tropical like leaves, combined with other summer flowering perennials really make a bold and dramatic planting scheme. Plant the green leaved canna species amongst contrasting leaf colour and textures. Full sun is fine for Canna lilies, they will flower so well but they can also tolerate a little shade during the day. Keep your Canna well watered and fed throughout the summer season for the best looking foliage and maximum flowering time.
