Exotic orange blooms set against chocolate-colored foliage give 'Orange Chocolate' Canna Lily a tropical feel. Specially bred for 'self-cleaning' blooms that drop quickly after fading, this plant will always look its best without any extra help from the gardener. Canna Lilies quickly grow into thick privacy screens, perform well in containers, and are a great height for the back border of the garden. (Canna Indica)

Plant Information

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."

      Comments about American Meadows Canna Lily Orange Chocolate:

      We grow Canna Lillies every year and wanted a new variety. Purchased 3 of this Variety and 3 of the Chocolate Sunrise and only one grew out of the bunch and it's not tall and it produced no flowers. All my cannas from years past grew and produced flowers. Very disappointed.

      Q & A

      Plant With These:

      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).
