The cannas in your garden will keep you ensured of colour around you from spring right through to the end of summer. And the colour that semi-dwarf Canna 'Firebird' provides is one you will want to be there for a good long while. This plants tall spikes bear a clump of bright red blooms at the top which open in succession. Cutting old stems will ensure that the flowering continues as long as possible. Canna 'Firebird' has long upright blue green leaves which set off the flowers to perfection. This plant will look good in beds, borders, containers or as a feature plant. It likes full or partial sun and moist soil but is not a picky customer.

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