These Blooms are Sure to Perk You Up!

Big, electric pink blooms open up right at eye level!
'Perkeo' is a compact tropical Canna that will dazzle you with its lush jungle foliage and its tall, long-petaled blooms. Opening an orange-tinted, pastel coral pink, these blooms mature in the sunlight to a deep carmine color. The long, narrow petals spread away from each other and reflex back towards the stem in a refined, airy display. The blooms arise from the center of the plant on tall, thick stalks (go ahead, pick one every now and again -- they're so showstopping in the vase!) They begin in early summer and continue right into fall, standing out brilliantly against the thick green leaves!

The graceful tropical beauty of 'Perkeo' is ideal beside the pool, on a sunny patio, or along an exposed walkway. For the best effect, plant 'Perkeo' in a row (space the rhizomes about 2 feet apart). Uniquely suited for the container, this compact Canna will quickly become the centerpiece of your container garden!

'Perkeo' is a fully self-cleaning flower, which means that, unlike other Cannas, it does not need deadheading. It is relatively easy to care for, thriving in almost any well-drained soil. This vigorous grower and floriferous bloomer does need to "eat" a lot, however. Be sure to give it plenty of sun, lots of water, and regular fertilizing. And if you live north of zone 8, overwinter this tropical perennial indoors and replant it in the spring. With proper care, 'Perkeo' will quickly reach its full height and reward you with bloom after bloom for years to come. Zones 8 to 11.
