#ProPlantTips for Care

Although Canna 'Bronze Scarlet' is a tropical plant, it is easy to grow in most areas of the USA. Plant in full sun, where it receives at least six hours of sunlight a day.

Provide rich potting soil for container plants. They like a few handfuls of compost added to the backfill soil in the ground.

Supply a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Mulch over the roots, but pull it back away from touching the canes.

To encourage rebloom, remove spent flowers with an angled cut. A small, sharp garden saw works well for this quick task.

In cold winters, dig Canna Lilies rhizomes after the first frost and store in a cool, dry place. Replant them once it warms up, and you'll be pleased how quickly they'll take off for you once again.

Order Cannova Bronze Scarlet Canna and add brilliant, easy-care color to your garden. You so deserve this exceptional choice!
