This canna is a vigorous grower and one of the most popular and recognised of all the Canna varieties. It has beautiful sunset, coloured foliage, striped with pink, green and red with lovely large orange flowers. It is stunning as a border plant, especially when mixed with other late flowering perennials and grasses but works equally well in a container. Canna 'Durban' is a tall variety and can reach 150cm.
Canna are suitable for growing in a container or for growing directly in the ground. Feed well for optimum growth during the growing season. Canna prefer a well drained soil. If you want to overwinter in the ground - mulch heavily in autumn to protect from winter frost or place an upturned pot over the crown, alternatively, lift the rhizome and store dry and frost free. Canna grow well and have the best colour in full sun and sheltered from strong winds.
