This Canna is a large grower with dark maroon, almost black foliage that blooms in mid to late summer with stunning crimson red flowers. Australian Canna Lilies love hot weather and thrive when planted in full sun to partial shade. They can also be grown in large containers. Canna lilies are great pond-side plants that can tolerate moist ground as well. Growing fast, the lush foliage quickly forms a large-leaved tropical screen that can reach a mature size of 5’ tall by 2-3' wide. Performs best in Zones 7-10, but in colder zones, the rhizomes can be lifted and stored over winter to re-plant when danger of last ground freeze has passed.
