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.
