Canna 'Red King Humbert'
Full sun, well drained soil
Flowers June to September
Pot size: 5 litre
Please note: Canna are dormant Oct-Apr so height at dispatch varies depending on the time of year
This is a fabulous canna, one of the first that Christopher Lloyd chose to display in his Exotic Garden at Great Dixter. Dark, glossy huge paddle shaped leaves coupled with vivid scarlet flowers. This would create a great focal feature in a container.
Suitable for a container or for growing directly in the ground. Feed well for optimum growth during the growing season. Prefers well drained soil if you want to overwinter in the ground - mulch heavily in autumn to protect from winter frost. Deadhead to maximise flowering. Cannas grow best in full sun in a location sheltered from wind.
