Details
Why we love it:
  • If you like the structure of luscious exotic foliage and fiery hot colours then this is the plant for you. It's fleshy foliage varies from rich burgundy mixed with green, to deep chocolate.
  • It looks strong on its own in a pot or equally striking as a foil for softer plants such as ornamental grasses.
  • Easy to grow & quick to mature, a great choice for creating a lush tropical feel in an urban garden. Although it's a tender perennial, you should be able to leave it outdoors in town & sheltered gardens with nothing more than a mulch.

    What you need to know:
  • What to expect: 1 x Canna Indica Red King Humbert (Pack of 2). Wait until March to plant up when the worst frosts are over.
  • Plant Type: Frost Hardy Perennial.
  • Flowers: Rich burgundy red flowers throughout the summer.
  • Approx Height when mature: 80cm
  • Position in the Garden: Full sun, in borders or containers.
  • Soil Type: Moist, fertile but free-draining. Not heavy clay.
  • Hardiness: Half-hardyCaring for your plant:
  • In mild areas with free-draining soil, Indian shot plants can be left to overwinter in the ground or pots, but in colder areas lift and store to protect them from the worst winter weather. Do this as soon as the first frosts have burnt the leaves black. Then cut back the top-growth to 15cm (6in) and lift the plants from the ground. As much soil as possible is cleaned off, before trimming any straggly, fine roots. Store them in boxes of dry compost to overwinter them in the garage, although any cool but frost-free place would do. The tubers are replanted in the spring once the danger of frosts has passed.
  • Canna is relatively resistant to drought, however if growing in pots, ensure that is watered daily during dry spells. Do not water overwinter.
