I took this photo back in August. I always found it amazing just how colorful the leaves of Canna Tropicana can be:
I brought my canna plants into my enclosed south facing back porch a couple of weeks ago.
Naturally one of the Canna Tropicana’s has decided to bloom like crazy now. I’m giving them a period of cool so they can become dormant, but not damaged by the much cooler temps outside. When the foliage starts to die down I’ll cut it off and bring them into my basement where it’s cool and usually dark, watering them perhaps once a month through the winter. I did that last year and my cannas did wonderfully.
I hope you’re having a great Sunday!
