Buy Canna 'Moonshine' Indian shot bulbs: Brings a touch of the tropics into the garden

  • Position: full sun (or indoors in full light shaded from hot sun)
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil or loam-less potting compost
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    Creamy white petals with a soft flush of yellow, form luminous flowers that blend easily with softer pinks, blues and purples. A compact and robust green-leaved cultivar that shows good resistance to virus.

  • 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.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
