Growing & Maintenance Tips for Canna 'Scarlet'

Seeds should be sown indoors in mid- to late February in a growing medium. Lightly cover the seeds and water. Maintain a temperature of 68 to 77°F. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into individual pots. Plant outdoors after the danger of frost is past. Easy to grow. Plant in full sun for the most showy blooms. Will tolerate and bloom in partial shade in hot climates. Tolerant of heavy soils but thrives in all conditions but drought. Generous watering will promote heavier flowering and keep the foliage clean and lush.
