Canna Pretoria
Cannas are easy to grow from rhizome or seed. They add a tropical look to any garden with their big bold leaves and stunning flowers in various colors. They grow and multiply quickly and flower continuously until frost. They are often prized primarily for their large leaves and fast growth which can quickly transform a garden into a tropical paradise. In more tropical climates, cannas can grow and flower all year round. And while many plants wither away in the summer sun, cannas really kick in to show you just how magnificent they can be. Cannas also attract butterflies and hummingbirds. With the diversity in size and color, cannas are always great plants for any garden.
