Growing and Care

Tropical Canna's grow in most areas of Australia and thrives in a sunny position. It is best grown in rich, moist, soil that is well-drained. A thin layer of mulch may help retain soil moisture. During the flowering period remove any spent blooms to promote and maintain the floral display. Cut back hard after flowering and fertilise in the spring. For best results protect from snails and slugs.


The Tropical Canna looks great planted in large containers and can provide a lush tropical display when mass planted in gardens that border swimming pools or deck areas. Their tall dense habit also provides an ideal low screen.
