Cannas are heat-loving perennials so they are great performers in Florida gardens. With proper care, plants can grow anywhere from a few feet in height to over fifteen feet tall. The flowers come in shades of pink, yellow, orange, and red and will reappear throughout the season if the old flowers are removed (some cultivars are self-cleaning, making dead-heading unnecessary).
The plants are interesting even when they’re not in bloom, thanks to their banana-shaped leaves that come in green, purple, and variegated forms.
