Plant the "Pacific Beauty" Canna in spring and it will bloom in mid summer through fall. Gardeners in areas that receive frost will want to dig the bulbs up at the end of the season and store them for the winter.

Growing Cannas, large and small. Canna lilies are wonderful in the garden. Growing fast, the full size selections quickly form a handsome large-leaved screen or an island of tropical-looking foliage from about 3 to 4 feet tall.. And then the show begins, and goes on for weeks and weeks. Huge, iris-like flowers begin to open, and before you know it, your canna lily plants have become the undisputed center of attention in your entire yard. They're really this spectacular, and a snap to grow. They're really wetland plants, and can grow in moist ground. Constant wetness isn't necessary, but water them often. Cannas are used as municipal plantings in many places like Miami. They are so good at taking care of themselves, they add great stripes of color in median strips, parks, and other places. So pick out a sunny spot in your garden or yard, and add cannas for the big show this summer.

Our good friend, Jack Scheper, the plant expert who runs Floridata.com, tells us that cannas are native to Central and South America, and many of the current hybrids also have a North American species as a parent. Jack grows cannas, and is a big enthusiast. As he says, the foliage "looks like a small banana tree without the trunk."

The Pfitzer Dwarfs Many gardeners prefer the smaller cannas of the "Pfitzer" group. With smaller, but brilliant, bi-colored flowers, these cannas grow to only about 16". They're great for the front of borders or patio pots, making a thick clump of handsome foliage with a bouquet that goes on all season.

Pros

  • Grew Fast Pretty Flower

Cons

  • Not very tall

Best Uses

    Comments about American Meadows Canna Lily Pacific Beauty:

    The description said height was 60-90" tall. Only grew about 2 1/2' tall. I wanted it for privacy and it did not work out. Ordered 3 bags of 3 and 6 grew. Hopefully they will grow taller next year and the bulbs that did not grow will be ok. I have used other Canna Lilys and they have grown 7 to 8' tall. I like the flowers because they attract hummingbirds and butterflys.

          Comments about American Meadows Canna Lily Pacific Beauty:

          The bulbs did not grow. I purchased one bag of three bulbs. I have not disturb the bulbs which were planted the beginning of May. Hopefully when I take out the bulbs for the winter they will have some life in them and will grow next year, maybe not but I can be hopeful as it looks like a very pretty flower.

          Pretty Foliage but Stunted Growth

          By 

          from Beaufort, SC

          Pros

          • Pretty foliage

          Cons

          • No Growth
          • Stunted Growth

          • Garden

          Comments about American Meadows Canna Lily Pacific Beauty:

          In 2012, the foliage emerged from 2 bulbs, was beautiful, but stunted around 10 inches & never flowered. This year, as of May 2013, only 1 bulb has emerged, no sign of the other, and for a month has been stunted at 6 inches. They are planted in my west facing garden receiving 5-6 hours of full sun and ample water. I must have received bad bulbs from the same batch as the other reviewer. Disappointed they didn't grow as expected as the foliage would have been amazing at maximum growth.

          Comments about American Meadows Canna Lily Pacific Beauty:

          I have grown the Canna lily Tropicana in the past without a problem, but these that I ordered last May did not grow at all...contacted American Meadows about them but all they said was to give it time. I'm very disappointed and am thinking hard about whether I will order again this spring.

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
