Canna Happy Julia
Effortlessly transform your garden into a jungle oasis with the finery of canna ‘Happy Julia’. This variety boasts beautiful bronze-green foliage, offering superb ornamental interest even before the buds unfurl. Flowering from July to October, the billowing blooms of salmon-orange will further ignite your summer and autumn display. The ‘Happy’ series has been hybridised to create a perfectly proportioned, bantam variety of canna. ‘Happy Julia’ reaches a height of 50cm, bringing intense colour to containers, patio displays and petite spaces. This vigorous tender perennial will soon steal the limelight with the blazing brilliance of its vibrant flowers and luxuriant foliage.
Start rhizomes off in a greenhouse or conservatory in spring, planting outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.
Lay the root horizontally, 5cm deep in a large pot filled with potting compost and keep the soil damp.
In late May or early June, choose a sunny location with well-drained, rich soil. Plant Cannas 10cm deep and 30-45cm apart.
From July to October, robust stems of exotic, vibrant blooms reach heights of 50-125cm depending on variety.
Shorter cultivars are suitable for pots.
Lift rhizomes in autumn or bring pots undercover for the winter months as tender Cannas do not tolerate freezing temperatures.
