What a treasure! Part of the groundbreaking Tropical? series — the first dwarf Cannas available as seed! — Salmon has the same big blooms found on Giant Cannas, but on a lush 2?-foot plant compact enough to grow in a container!
Just 3 months after you sow these seeds, you will see the first radiant blooms, boasting shades of peach, apricot, pink, and melon among the salmon. They continue into fall in all climates, and even go into winter in subtropical settings! Fully 3 to 4 inches wide, they are as big and showy as those of the largest Canna varieties, which makes them really stand out on such a compact plant!
The foliage is bright green, large, and paddle-shaped on this columnar tropical, and may be evergreen in the warmest areas. Give it plenty of sunshine and water, and it will look lush and dense in container or garden!
Like all Cannas, Tropical? Salmon loves heat and sun, and doesn’t mind boggy, even wet soils. It’s a great waterside planting, as well as an unbeatable container choice for poolside, deck, and patio. Add a touch of island beauty with this exotic bloomer!
Salmon is a very unusual color in the Canna family, and you will be delighted with the brilliance of these blooms. Enjoy! Zones 7-11. Packet is 5 seeds.
