First Canna of the Summer

 

Canna

Also called Canna Lily, it is actually the only genus in the family Cannaceae ~ not in the Lily family

Our patch of  yellow Canna were planted by a prior owner and have multiplied and naturalized beautifully along the east side of our house. Some great things about Canna:

  • After planting they are labor free, unless you decide to divide and spread them out on your property ~ or share with friends and family.
  • They are heat, drought and deer resistant.
  • They provide beauty in the garden for three seasons;
