The canna lily plant is a rhizomatous perennial with tropical-looking foliage and large, iris-like flowers. Canna lilies are low maintenance and easy to grow, and both their flowers and foliage provide long-lasting colour in the garden.
The colour of the flowers can be red, orange or yellow. Depending on the variety, foliage colour varies from green to maroon, bronze and variegated types. Let's look at how to plant canna lilies and tips for growing cannas. 
Although they are usually grown as annuals in cooler regions, given the right conditions, canna lilies can add colour to the garden year after year. They like warmth, so place them in full sun. They can also tolerate partial shade. Cannas also like moist conditions, but will tolerate almost any well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly acidic. They also appreciate bog-like conditions.
The soil should also be rich in organic matter. When growing cannas in the garden, placing them in mixed borders or group plantings will offer the most spectacular effect. How to plant canna lilies Cannas can be planted outdoors in warm climates or in containers in other areas. When planting canna lily plants in the spring, wait until the threat of frost has passed.
Clumps of cannas should be planted one to two feet apart. 10 Sec Indoor hyacinth care: Caring for hyacinth houseplants after flowering Although they technically have no top or bottom, most canna rhizomes can be planted horizontally with the eyes facing up. Cover the rhizomes with 7.5 to 15 cm of soil. Water well and apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture.
Once established, cannas need to be kept moist. They also require a monthly fertiliser relatively higher in phosphate for continuous flowering. Canna rhizomes usually need to be dug up and stored in autumn. They can also be planted in pots and left to grow over winter. In spring they can be replanted or moved outdoors. You can also divide the plant during this time if necessary.
