 When to Plant Cannas

  • Cannas can not tolerate cold temperatures. Soil must be 60¬ļF or warmer before planting rhizomes‚ÄĒoften the time when folks put¬†tomatoes in the ground. See our¬†Planting Calendar¬†for tomato-planting dates. To determine soil temps,¬†dig a small hole 2 inches deep and insert¬†a¬†thermometer.
  • In cold-, short-season areas, start canna rhizomes in pots indoors or in a greenhouse to transplant outdoors at the right¬†time.

How to Plant Cannas

  • Space rhizomes 1-1/2 to 2 feet apart to give cannas enough room. Containers need to be at least 18 inches in diameter (per¬†rhizome).¬†
  • Before planting, loosen the soil to a depth of 1 foot, then mix in 2 to 4 inches of¬†compost.
  • Dig a hole 2¬†inches deep and set the rhizome 1 to 2 inches below the soil with the ‚Äúeyes‚ÄĚ (bumps or nodes, which are growth sprouts) pointed¬†up.¬†¬†
  • Cover with 1 to 2 inches of soil. Tamp¬†firmly.
  • Water thoroughly, then withhold water for as long as 3 weeks, and watch for signs of growth. Cannas are slow to sprout. Once sprouted, water at least once a week by slowly soaking the area around the¬†roots.
  • Full foliage color develops when days are warmer (59¬ļF or more).¬†Blooms should appear in 10 to 12¬†weeks.

Small rhizomes

Advertised as three eye rhizomes and what you recieve is tiny one eyed bulbs with lots of last years roots. As an experienced canna Gardner, I know what these should have been. Not a good value. I will be surprised If two of the three even sprout. Total misrepresentation.
