Buy Canna 'Phasion' canna (syn. Canna Tropicanna): Very showy, bright orange flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil or loam-less potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy

    Each leaf is variously striped in green, purple, orange and pink, creating a dazzling effect that is further enhanced when the orange flowers appear. Spectacular in a hot-themed planting scheme, it also mixes well with plum and purple.

  • 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.

  • Humans/Pets: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten

Different Foliage to Product Photo


I started the canna rhizome in a small pot in the greenhouse and planted it out late spring early summer. It felt like it took a long time to reach its full height and then only produced two flowers in October which didn't last very long. The dark foliage is nice but not what I was expecting at all. I purchased it in the first place because of the foliage but it looks very different. I'm wondering if I actually received the correct product? I grew the canna in full sun in a large pot.

Second try to grow Canna Phasion


The plant has not grown well but that could be due to the weather. The first one I bought last year did not grow at all but that was in a pot so I decided to buy another this year. This was put into the ground, has a lot of leaves but had no flowers.

Very attractive leaves


Very attractive leaves, but, for me, later flowering and less prolific than some other cannas

Great show last year,am buying again




Very long flowering period - I recommend it


I planted the canna out this year and though it was a little slow to start with, it then just kept on flowering right till the first frosts. The leaves are a lovely colour and contrast well with the flowers. I have to lift it for the winter because our soil gets quite wet, but it is worth it.




Brilliant plant which does what is described


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

You can never quite predict how severe our winter weather will be, but you don't need a crystal ball to know that some plants will need protection or lifting and storing to survive a winter.
