This is the first year I am growing cannas from seed. I have been discouraged over the past years as the virus infected the stock I rec'd from a US grower who suggested that they would "outgrow" the virus. Yeah, right! Is it true that seed grown cannas are virus-free?
I planted my cannas about two weeks ago after nicking them and soaking in water for 24 hours. Some are already 2 inches tall, and vigorous. It looks like I will be repotting them all in a week or so, and continue to grow them under lights.
The ground isn't really warmed-up here (zone 5) until late May. I plan to set them out then. Can I expect them to bloom this summer?
Can you share your experience with seed-grown cannas?
