Lilies, Canna

Canna x generalis

I like canna lilies. They seem easy to grow, which is good for someone like me. Most of mine came from Lowes' or Sam's annual half-price bulb sales. I love a good plant bargain. The only problem I have with them is leaf rollers, which tend to destroy the leaves. Wasps do a decent job of preying on these caterpillars but I have to be vigilant and pick them off myself. The punishment for eating my canna leaves?........become a koi and goldfish meal! I have managed to collect viable seeds from the Yellow King Humbert and Crimson Beauty varieties.
