Canna Red Beauty
The blazing brilliance of Canna ‘Red Beauty’ provides exceptionally long-lasting colour, igniting your summer display with its fiery flowers and luxuriant foliage. This Canna boasts large, verdant leaves, bringing a lush, tropical touch to your garden. Above the backdrop of decorative foliage, billowing blooms of scarlet red are carried on sturdy, stately spires. This exotic specimen will steal the limelight with its magnificent foliage and vivid colour. Growing to a manageable 60-70cm, ‘Red Beauty’ is a neat variety for more compact spaces, providing a splendid spectacle for containers and borders alike.
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.
