  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil or loam-less potting compost
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Flower colour: apricot-orange
  • Other features: large, purple-bronze leaves
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    Creating a dramatic statement towards the back of a mixed border, the large purple-bronze leaves and very large ruffled apricot-orange flowers lend a colourful and exotic touch to planting schemes.

  • Garden care: Pot the rhizomes up into 20cm pots filled with a good quality compost. The rhizomes should be planted shallowly, just covering them with compost, but making sure that any new shoots are above soil level. Water lightly and then grow them on at temperatures above 15°C, increasing the water as they start to grow. Gradually harden off before planting out after all risk of frost has passed. Water regularly during the growing season, applying a phosphorus-rich liquid fertiliser each month. In frost-prone areas lift the rhizomes in autumn and store in a frost-free environment in barely-moist compost or leaf mould.

    Comments about Canna 'Wyoming':

    bought these to make a summer display in vey big pots and they delivered - we were not disappointed the show was fabulous. As these plants are not hardy they need to be brought in over winter where we live in Warwickshire- and as they grow very big the space required is considerable. we put ours in our greenhouse

      Calla lilies looking yellow

      Hi, we have a large pot of Canna lilies on our patio which have always done well. They were a bit battered after the cold winter but were recovering but recently they have started to turn yellow. They are regularly fed and watered, is there something else we could do thanks.

      • A:

        Hello there, It sounds as if you are doing everything right, but you may be using a fertiliser which does not have enough nuitrogen in it. I would recommend using a good all-rounder such as MiracleGro or Growmore. You should also make sure that it gets plenty of water, but that the excess water can drain away freely after watering. Best regards,
