Growing Cannas is easy, your choice where to plant them
I’m thrilled growing cannas as they flower for eight to nine months of the year in my climate.
These tropical plants add some structure to my garden with great foliage colors and also have a great tolerance in the dry times.
Classic cannas are at home in cottage gardens themes and dry gardens, even though they are fairly dry tolerant the aquatic cannas are suitable for backyard ponds either planted around the edge of a pond or submerged.
On a recent holiday along the coast of the Great Ocean Road I was pleasently surprised to see many home gardens with cannas in their planting schemes.
The gardens had beach road frontage and the cannas were thriving and really stood out amongst other hardy garden flowers perennials including Agapanthus and Kniphofias.
Agapanthus is a great looking summer companion plant when grown alongside Cannas, they both give a colorful display, and I have sourced some varieties for sale from Ebay.
If your not already a Ebay member then it's best to sign up for Ebay now, so when you're ready to bid, maybe at the last minute of an auction, you'll be all registered and ready to go.
