Canna Lillies

Narromine Iris Farm has about 90 different Canna Lilies which bloom for us in the summer.  In our climate with frosts in the winter, they die down with the frosts and we cut them off about 15cm from the ground and wait till the winter is over when they shoot again and bloom all through the summer.

They are very easy to grow from fleshy rhizomes. In the warmer tropical areas of Australia they will grow all year without frosts and usually grow taller as well.

 

When planting, we place a handful of Blood and Bone, Sulphate of Potash and Lime in the soil and have lots of flowers all summer. We have a variety of colours in dwarf, medium and talls. They are available by mail order all year.
