Narromine Iris Farm has a limited number of Canna Lilies which bloom in the summer. In our climate with frosts in the winter, they die down with the frosts. Once the danger of frosts is over, we cut off the dead leaves and the new shoots appear to bloom throughout the summer.
They are very easy to grow from fleshy rhizomes. In the warmer tropical areas of Australia they will grow all year without frosts.
When planting, we have found they respond well to a handful of Blood and Bone, Sulphate of Potash and Lime in the soil.
Cannas available are in red, yellow with red spots, red leafed with orange flowers, green and yellow striped leaves with orange flowers, multi coloured leaf with orange flowers, Stutgart (green leaves with cream stripes and orange flowers) . We also have limited quantities of dwarf canna lilies in pink, red and lemon.
Canna lilies are sold bare rooted at $5 per rhizome plus postage.
