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

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom Canna are in a family of their own but the closest to them are the Hedychium known as Ginger Lily. 😊

Second year in a row this #canna has flowered, although I confess that it's been growing in its winter pot. I never got round to planting it properly in the border this year #orange #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
