I am new to growing cannas from the rhizomes. This year I am planning to grow in containers:
- 3 'Firebird'
- 1 Madame Paul Caseneuve
Since I am zone 5, my last frost date is usually late May. So if I get my canna rhizomes in late April/early May can I pot them in smaller pots and get them going inside earlier? Then later in May put them out into their final larger container? I guess I am asking if they mind having their roots disturbed or not.
Also since these are considered dwarf cannas, does anyone have a suggestion of ultimate pot size? Is 18" too small? Can I plant other things in the larger pot?
Anyone have the Canna book by Timber Press? Is it worth getting?
