Canna Lily Tenerife

Canna Lily   KAN-uh        

Tenerife:  Canna Tenerife blooms will catch the eye of every passerby, but as often as not, these gorgeous tropical plants are grown for their stunning foliage as much as for their flowers. Tenerife has a golden flower with specks of orange atop full green foliage that lasts from late spring to the first frost. This beautiful lily prefers full sun but will do fine in part-sun. It makes a wonderful cut flower for arrangements as well. It is also great for the sunny border, large containers or planted in mass in your garden beds for a dramatic statement. Butterflies and hummingbirds love Canna Tenerife and they’ll be sure to fill your landscape with color and tropical flare wherever you plant them.

Description

Canna Lily  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.
