Canna 'Taroudant' Canna Lily Bulb

Item #29691


Tough, low maintenance, and deer resistant

Plant Canna 'Taroudant' in spring, and in summer, this canna lily produces masses of large, fleshy bright green leaves topped with bicolor orange and yellow flowers. Borne atop long, strong, sturdy stems the prolific flower spikes bloom all summer, beckoning to butterflies and hummingbirds.

A Canna indica, commonly called canna, canna lily, or Indian shot, 'Taroudant' is an exotic herbaceous tender perennial that spreads by rhizomes and has an upright clumping habit. Heat- and humidity-loving, cannas mingle well with other annuals and perennials, especially those that share the canna lily's tropical temperament. They grow well in boggy areas and around water features. Grouped or massed, cannas create a theatrical backdrop for shorter plants in beds and borders, but they also make a spectacular screen in mild climates and an especially nice "thriller" (focal point) in a container garden.

A tough, low-maintenance plant, canna lily grows best in sunny locations with organically rich, moist, well-draining soil; but it tolerates partial shade and most soils, including poorly drained soils. Canna tends to be thirsty and hungry, so keep the plant well watered and well fed with plenty of compost or organic fertilizer. Deadheading the entire stalk encourages blooming. 'Taroudant' Canna Lily is deer resistant.

In regions with mild winters (Zones 8-11), the canna lily can be cut back to soil level and left in the ground or in pots over winter. In regions with severe winters (Zones 3-6), the plant can be cut to about 4 inches after the first frost in late autumn, the rhizome clump dug up, dried a few days, and stored in a cool, dry place. In spring, divide the rhizome shoots, and replant after the threat of frost has passed when soil temperature is a minimum of 60°F.
