Cannas are pretty easy. They do like moisture and some cow manure (composted) is good...they are heavy feeders. Full sun, but tolerate a bit of shade here in the heat.
The only major problem they have here is leaf rollers. You can see this if you have rolled foliage that won't open. Look carefully, and there would be little threads holding it closed. There would be little caterpillars inside if you opened it.
If you get these nasty buggers :), cut off the infected foliage and burn or trash it. Leaf rollers can overwinter in infected foliage and won't be killed off in a compost pile.
Happy gardening!
