Tropicanna® Canna Lily Bulb

Item #43920


Jaw-dropping foliage

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit

The huge new leaves unfurl purple on this delightful canna, quickly acquiring pinstripes of orange, gold, and crimson among the green. By far the most eye-catching foliage in the family, there are few garden sights as impressive as these leaves when the sunlight shines through them.

Set about with orange blooms like giant flares, Tropicanna® Canna Lily is a spectacular accent for patio and poolside. A favorite of modern garden designers, this popular splash of color is the cultivar that put cannas back on the map.

This tropical just thrives in the heat, so expect it to be the star of the garden when less tolerant plants have slumped from exhaustion. Tropicanna® is stunning enough that just one plant makes a lovely thriller in mixed containers or beds, but the stately flower stalks also work beautifully in rows: use them liberally along exposed paths and walkways to fill your yard with color.

Plant Tropicanna® Canna Lily in full sun in a soil rich with plenty of organic material, and water it frequently. It will reward you with exceptional vigor and the most stunning foliage you will ever see. This canna will naturalize to fill the area, and every few years should be divided, providing you more bulbs to spread across the garden. Deadheading is recommended, and it will help the blazing orange blooms come on faster.

Poor quality bulb

This shopper rated the product 1 out of 5 stars

The bulb was not viable. Was completely dried out. I planted it anyway, even though I knew it would not grow but still hoping it would.

Beautiful for the Foliage

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I planted this last year in a very large pot. The plant grew well with beautiful foliage but it did not flower; not sure why but it is well worth it for the beautiful color of the leaves.
