Canna Happy Emily

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Plant canna ‘Happy Emily’ to be transported to a tropical island from the comfort of your own garden. The golden yellow blooms speckled with orange suggest the sunshine of warmer climes, even on a grey day. Large, paddle-shaped, bright green foliage brings a fresh, lush feel. Happy by name and happy by nature, these compact plants are laden with flowers from July to October. Specially bred to provide all the splendour of cannas with more petite proportions, this variety reaches 50cm in height. ‘Happy Emily’ is ideal for enhancing patio displays, containers and smaller spaces.

Care Guide

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.
