Large deep scarlet-red flowers above quick-growing green, tropical-looking leaves: the definition of showstopper! These tall but compact lilies are extremely easy to grow, both in the garden and in containers. They need moist, well-drained soil and full sun, and will grow 48-60 inches tall, 36 inches wide. Meticulously bred in Israel, plants are long-flowering with prolific blooms from mid-summer until frost. No need to deadhead, the flowers self-clean. The leaf shape of canna lilies collects dew moisture overnight, providing a drinking fountain for small birds and insects in the morning. In colder climates, bulbs should be planted as annuals; lift the bulbs before frost and store in a cool, dry place before re-planting the next spring.
