Canna Lily Maderia

Canna Lily  KAN-uh

Madeira:

Canna Maderia shows off large tropical green foliage with red-orange blooms. Great plants for use as the thriller in large combinations, they also do very well grown alone in containers and lend a tropical feel to gardens in any locale. Madeira has an adorable flower that is a bright red but edged with yellow, giving them a delightfully delicate, almost frilly appearance. A lovely variety and long flowering through the summer.

Description

Canna  KAN-uh

Canna gained popularity during the Victorian era between 1860-1910, when European gardeners created more formal gardens. At the beginning of the 20th century, gardens transformed into more informal and relaxed perennial borders and the Cannas decreased in their popularity. However, modern breeders are releasing hundreds of cultivars, hence why the comeback is so strong! Canna lilies are low maintenance and easy to grow; both their flowers and foliage offer long lasting color in the garden. The flower color may be red, orange, yellow, coral or a combination of those colors. Depending on the variety, foliage color varies from green to maroon, bronze and variegated types. They grow well in the garden or in containers.
