Bold green and gold striped leaves with lovely reddish edges, the orangy-yellow flouncy blooms of the Bengal Tiger Canna (Canna 'Bengal Tiger') is just the vivid pop of color your landscape has been searching for! Even if you don't have a yard, this upright-growing ornamental flowering accent!

The fine stripes that cover each leaf in tiger stripes of bold green and bright yellow are almost the main feature of this bold plant! But then comes the summer flowers in a bright yellow-orange! The ruffled vibrant petals attract loads of hummingbirds and pollinators as they stand tall like Gladiolus.

Bengal Tiger Variegated Canna Lilies grow fast from fibrous rhizomes and quickly display those flamboyant flower spikes and paddle-shaped upright leaves! Hardy outdoors year-round in USDA growing zones 8 through 11 but can be enjoyed as either annual accents in all growing zones. Canna can also be lifted and stored for the winter in a frost-free location in all northern climates.

Planting and Application:

Bengal Tiger Canna is like a beacon in the landscape with its flouncy petals and glowing color! Backed by the large foliage that is a dramatic vertical spectacle anywhere in the sun! The exotic flair looks fantastic in both containers and in garden beds, and especially when used in drifts, groupings and winding rows for an incredible display!

Cannas love moisture, so use them around your Rain gardens and water features, ponds and patios alike! The big blooms enliven the front porch plantings and the poolside garden! Mixed planters and balcony pots gain a tall shock of color. Combine with other exotic plants or summer flowering bulbs.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

The ideal location for these full-sun rhizomatic plants is in moderately moist to almost wet enriched soil, which should always well-drained. It is also a good idea to ensure that Canna has a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch over the surface. Provide regular fertilizer and deadhead when blooming is done. Canna rhizomes are not frost-hardy and do need to be dug in the fall before they freeze. Keep them in a cool, frost-free area in a bag in a garage or shed.

  • Moist to Wet Soil
  • Well-Drained Mulched & Fertile Sites
  • Dig Up & Store In Cool Climates
