I'm trying one again this year too. I have the opposite problem. They do fine until our summer heat arrives. Then the seem to dry and get crispy and die. I've put them in partial shade this year so hope it works better.

For the most part, Katie and Keely, @gjones @Keely people here in the southeast US put their cannas in full sun

Leslie do you have hot dry heat or hot humid heat? I'm sure it gets hot and humid there- you're in Tennessee right? I wonder if mine dry up because it's too dry of a heat🤔 It's doing okay right now but the heat is only starting. Supposed to feel like 100F this coming weekend. @lesliecole49

Yes Tennessee Katy @gjones very hot and humid. I don't grow bank as so I can only tell you what I did. I wonder then, with a lack of humidity if they wouldn't do better in some shade. 🤔 Interesting. I used to live in Arizona where it's very dry. Like an oven compared to a sauna

@lesliecole49 I'd definitely compare our summer heat to that of Arizona - hot and dry with the occasional shower.

I didn't realize it got that warm in Canada! I used to live in Michigan too and it rarely got that warm. (Military brat, I've been a few places)

I can't speak for all of Canada but on the prairies we have hot dry summers. Today it was 92F and by Sunday it's supposed to be 100F. In August (harvest season) we often get temps of 100 F. @lesliecole49
