Which cannas, If any, will bloom in shade or semi shade. I love cannas, but there are no more sunny places in my yard. There is a LOT of shade though.

Canna x generalis 'Stuttgart' people say they burn if planted in sun so they put them in shade.. I am waiting on my order for this year, so i have no experience on them.. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/37576/

Cannas take at least 4-6 hours of sun. If you have that in any of your shade places, you are good to go :)

Thanks for this information on growing cannas in part shade.
That increases my possibilities when I get the seeds going next season.

I Have a large quantity of Cleopatra canna...They get morning sun only. The rest of the day they are in solid shade right up against my house. They keep coming back. Right now about 50 blooms and tons of new growth.
