Canna Australia has stunning, bright red blooms atop almost black foliage that adds drama in mid to late summer! Can grow to 5' in full sun to part shade. Plant in moist soil or shallow water but make sure there is some protection from wind to avoid it blowing over! Makes a dramatic background plant when planted behind shorter specimens. The gorgeous red flowers attract hummingbirds! Canna is a tremendous plant when placed in pots with holes, in your pond, roots from the canna absorb nutrients in the water to help control algae growth. In Northern climates, lift tender bulbs after first frost in the fall and store in cool, dry conditions. Plant in spring when danger of frost is over.
