We have lived in our house for over 10 yrs. When we moved in, there were bronze colored canna lilies planted in a brick window box on the east side of the house. My job kept me so busy, that I hadn't allowed the garden fever to hit, so payed very little attention to them. Last spring, we noticed the box was being pushed away from the house, so I moved the tubers into a new flower garden I was establishing. By late August, they were over 7 feet tall! Though the flowers were insignificant when viewed on this huge plant, they did attract the hummingbirds. This year, they are coming up at least 3 times more than what I planted. I'm already having to cut some off, as they are spreading into where I have other bulbs planted and don't want to disrupt those bulbs. I really enjoyed them last year, but if I don't move them this fall, my entire garden will be cannas! My husband is preparing a place at the front of our pasture, where they can spread as much as their hearts desire.
