"Bulbs offer an essential element to a well-appointed garden. Due to the vast range of choices, making the right selection can be a challenge, as they present themselves in a myriad of colors, textures and personalities. Packaged dormant flowerbulbs are easy and fun to grow and are much like a buried treasure. I enjoy planting bulbs all over Moss Mountain Farm to find varieties that perform well and have that star quality. I have selected some of my favorites for you to give them a try. I think you will be pleased." P. Allen Smith Cannas are among the most colorful summer bulbs - as flamboyant as their tropical American ancestry - with ruffled spikes tapering to refined buds boasting immense, paddle shaped leaves. Their great reedy canes and palmy foliage make for large magnificent plants even if they never bloomed. However, they yield blooms all summer long for long lasting curb appeal and are most dramatic when grouped. The south African Pretoria Canna Lily is a very vigorous bloomer unlike most other variegated Cannas and is a fast grower with large flowers. The leaves are marked with prominent white lines that run the entire length of the leaves. Where not hardy, plant outdoors in early summer 2 inches deep, setting the rhizome in the hole with 'eyes' (shoots) up. Cannas do best with a good supply of water. As flowers fade, deadhead to promote continued flowering.
