I grew this from seed this year. All I remember was the pack said "Red Canna" I started the seeds inside in March and it surprised me with a bloom today! Is it because it is a seedling/plant? Or is there a name for this little beauty? By the way, this is as big as the bloom has gotton, and it don't look like it is going to be any bigger.

Thanks Larkie! Guess the place I have them will be running over with them before long huh? I know what I'll be trading out next year LOL The place I have it in is kinda small, well not small but it actually has other stuff in and around it. So guess I'll be moving them eaither around OR out of there! LOL
Thanks again!!

I was so amazed that it actually bloomed! Knowing that I grew if from seed makes me feel like I actually done something right LOL I like them too!

I grew a bunch of these from seeds this year too Molly. And yes, I did it on purpose. LOL These plants have always been a humming bird favorite in my yard. The last year I had them, I had a row about 25 feet long. Someone convinced me to leave them in the ground for the winter. All gone!! I think I ended up with 80 something from seed but about a dozen are some other kinds.

O so they are pretty much an annual?? I'll have to remember to get seeds if that's the case.
I just made a long row of canna's that I got from Bleek at the GA plant swap last month and they are coming along nicely. I was hoping to put a row of these in along the same row next year if they multiplied well enough...guess I know what kind of seeds I will be starting come March! LOL
Thanks for the heads up!!

I don't know about annual/perennial for you. I'm sure they would winter over close to pavement or the foundation. Mine weren't and I am also a zone cooler than you. Mine were out in the center of the backyard.

Do you have problems with your other canna's? I mean if you have different ones that is. Or is it just this kind?? Mine is pretty much out in the open as well, so if it needs protection like up closer to the house...then I know I will have to do seeds again. I'll keep my fingers crossed that mine make it thru the winter.
