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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil or loam-less potting compost
  • 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.

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.

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.
