Description

Rich, big and cherry like, the dwarf Canna 'Cherry Red' is a delightful plant to have in your garden. The bright blooms look lily-like as they open at the top of strong stems which let these beauties really shine. Several flowers open in turn on each stem which reaches about 70 cm or 28 inch in height. The red is further accentuated by the Cherry Red’s grey-green leaves. Blooming time is between June and November. Canna 'Cherry Red' likes a rich, moist soil, but doesn’t like to stand in water. This means they will do well on the banks of a pond or stream, providing delightful spots of colour there. However, it would be wise to move them to somewhere drier for winter.

Gracy tells: Look at the leaves!
"Canna leaves are bold and famous for their tropical look. Most Canna Lily cultivars (like Canna 'Cherry Red') have rich emerald-green leaves, but some have red to bronze leaves!"
