Description:

SEEDS RED CANNA LILY (Zingiberales), ATTRACTS WILDLIFE, ORNAMENTAL

BEAUTIFUL RED CANNA WILL ADD A GREAT TOUCH OF COLOR TO ANY LANDSCAPE.

ALL PLANTS IN MY LANDSCAPE ARE GROWN ORGANICALLY.

IN WARMER CLIMATES GROW OUTSIDE ALL YEAR AND IN COOLER CLIMATES DIG AND STORE RHIZOMES FOR THE WINTER. GREAT IN CONTAINERS OR IN THE GROUND.

CANNA IS NOT A TRUE LILY BUT IS IN THE ZINGIBERALES GROUP WITH RELATIVES LIKE BANANA, BIRD OF PARADISE, GINGER AND MORE.

ADDS A TROPICAL LOOK WITH ITS LARGE VIBRANT GREEN LEAVES

GREAT FOR POLLINATORS INCLUDING AN OCCASIONAL HUMMINGBIRD.

SEEDS ARE SMALL AND HARD AND WILL NEED TO BE SOAKED OR SCARIFIED TO HELP WITH GERMINATION

RESEARCH REVEALS THIS PLANT HAS MANY ATTRIBUTES BESIDES ITS BEAUTY. IT IS REPORTEDLY EDIBLE AND HAS SOME MEDICINAL PROPERTIES. I DO NOT KNOW, PLEASE RESEARCH IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THESE ASPECTS. I GROW CANNAS FOR THEIR BEAUTY AND FOR THE WILDLIFE.

SHIPS ONLY TO THE CONTIGUOUS LOWER UNITED STATES.

ITEM IS SHIPPED USPS FIRST CLASS AND POSTAGE INCLUDES TRACKING SO SEEDS CAN BE PACKAGED SO THEY WILL NOT GO THROUGH MACHINES. USPS IS STILL HAVING DELIVERY ISSUES WHICH I CAN NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR.

THANK YOU


Story of this Seed:

CANNA IS A STAPLE PLANT IN OUR LANDSCAPE. IT IS ONE OF THOSE GREAT "PASS ALONG" PLANT AND GROWS WELL EITHER FROM SEED OR RHIZOME.


Growing Tips:

SEEDS ARE VERY HARD. SOAK THE SEEDS FOR 24 HOURS. SCARIFICATION WILL ALSO SPEED GERMINATION. THERE ARE MANY WAS TO SCARIFY THE SEED. I PREFER TO USE A NAIL FILE AND LIGHTLY BUFF THE SIDE OF THE SEED TO REMOVE A BIT OF THE OUTER COATING. THIS WILL ALLOW THE SEED CAPSULE TO TAKE IN MOISTURE FASTER. JUST BE CAREFUL NOT TO FILE TOO DEEPLY INTO THE SEED AND DAMAGE THE EMBRYO.
