Canna Lilies: Explosions of Orange

Last spring friends gave us five very small Canna Lily bulbs from their garden. I had mentioned how I’ve always loved Canna Lilies’ height and color and wanted some for our backyard. After planting the five bulbs in the ground, three were growing heartily within a few weeks. The other two bulbs were given up for duds, but they eventually took off as well. Now that we’re at the end of October they’re obviously at their end of life, but have given us beautiful color all summer long. I’m still amazed at how tall and lush the Canna Lilies have become from those five very small bulbs we planted in April.
