I’m looking at cannas in a different light now, Rich! I love this one. Did you see last week’s Gardeners World? They visited a garden where there was a canna called ‘Panache’. It was beautiful. @richard.spicer.7906
Canna ‘Durban’ (aka ‘’Phasion’) has started flowering this season for me. A TIP - don’t deadhead a canna! The flowering stem continues to grow through the old flowers to produce new ones and it can do this up to 3-4 times in one season. If you cut it off after the first flush, then you essentially lose the rest of the flowers on that stem for the rest of the season. If anything, you can gently just pull off the tired looking petals as they fade to tidy it up a bit 👍🏼 #canna #canna-advice
I totally agree @richard.spicer.7906 I do exactly the same. It looks unsightly but they just keep producing flower stems. Love these! Over winter them and beginning of spring cut it right down to the base, start watering and hey presto it starts to grow. Quite possibly with little babies 👶 want more of these in different colours. Gorgeous!!
Canna ‘Durban’ , which also goes by the name of ‘Phasion’ - much more variegated variety and of red colouration. But you can see there are breaks in the lines and some parts have reverted to green. #canna #cannahealthcheck #canna-advice #canna-virus #cannadurban
Thanks all - considering the neglect it's had this year I really didn't expect much from it at all. Although they like full sun, a few do well in light shade. And all of them like plenty of water during the summer months, which can be difficult to achieve if your competing with sun. @Hut123456789 @Keely @latebloomer @noorkhan
Morning all, not long now before all the late summer hot colours start to fade. There is still so much going on in everyone's gardens - another of my four Cannas is finally flowering, and just in the nick of time too! 😁 #cannadurban
