Native to South America and South-east Asia, this brightly coloured plant brings a touch of the tropics to even the most English of gardens! Despite their exotic appearance, cannas can be grown easily throughout the UK. These sturdy plants often have striking striped leaves and bold, brightly coloured flowers. They work particularly well in pots and containers: rhizomes can be planted up in late spring and will flower in the same summer and well into autumn. Plunge the pots into borders for a splash of dramatic colour and remove them to a sheltered spot for overwintering. Cannas will grow in almost any soil but they are greedy plants and will flower best when fed a regular diet of well-rotted manure and compost. Lift the rhizomes in late October after flowering, store in a cool, dry place until spring and replant as the weather improves.
