Canna Lily

Posted: 08/11/2014 at 11:04

Thanks Chrissy. This is the first Canna I've had. Should I allow it to be hit by frost before bringing it in? Also, should I cut back the foliage? As you know, we've had a couple of frosts, but my Canna doesn't seem to have suffered - it still has flowers on it and a flower bud. I bought it at the HC Flower show and it was only a baby, so, I'm assuming it flowered late. When are they supposed to flower? Sorry for all the questions!

Can anyone give me any advice on how to overwinter a 'Canna Lily'. It has been grown in a pot, which it is still in. I don't have a greenhouse, but I do have a conservatory and I live in the south.

Yes, I too am a novice when it comes to roses. I'm not disheartened though - I've learnt that they are pretty hardy. I'll carry on with nurturing it and hopefully it'll bloom again beautifully this summer. Thank 'Gardening Grandma' (great name)

Thanks - I was concerned because it didn't shed all it's leaves last winter.

I once had a beautiful climbing rose (Shropshire Lad),purchased for me from the Hampton Court Flower Show 2 years ago. I did all the right things when planting it and it duly flowered last year. However, towards the end of the year - before frosts, the leaves showed signs of 'black spot'. I cut off all the offending leaves and kept up a continuous clearing up operation around the base of the rose and disposed of them properly. I now have a completey bare rose - no leaves whatsoever. Can anyone advise me as to whether it's 'curtains' for what was once a thriving,healthy plant.
