I bought 4 containers this summer of this canna. I have never really grown cannas before and need some guidance about deadheading. Where do I cut the dead flower off at? In easy to understand terms too...lol. And as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! I've been searching for this info, but coming up with all kinds of answers from: 1: don't need to deadhead 2: cut right beneath dead flower (but don't cut off hard to see new buds) 3: cut stalk all the way to the ground.
Also, I plan on lifting them and trying to store them for next year. I am thinking of putting them in containers next year and was wondering what size pots I should buy for them. IF they make it through the winter. I tried storing dahlias and they turned into prunes. ;o( But I'm going to try with the cannas anyway. What do I have to lose?
