Homeowner Growing Tips: While deadheading is not necessary to keep them blooming all summer, removing seed pods will likely improve appearance.
Water needs are simple and the plants are quite adaptable, even tolerating standing water for short periods of time. They can also take periods of relatively dry soil, although consistent moisture will produce the very best plants.

When I received this plant and it had only a single stem I was worried that it may not be the centerpiece I was hoping for in my planter. I had no reason to worry. As soon as it started to heat up this canna took off. It bloomed nonstop all season and expanded rapidly with about 8-10 shoots by the end of the season.
