If you need to add some serious colour foliage to your garden, look no further than the Canna Tropicanna. It’ll give you that tropical holiday feel right at your doorstep.

  • Canna Tropicanna is a real show stopper with its vibrant and exotic foliage and its magnificent flowers. It’s a go-to plant if you want to create a real impact in your garden.
  • This plant thrives on very little fuss, so it’s a perfect feature for almost any garden. It likes a good sunny spot and can cope in most soils, including poorly drained areas.
  • They are fairly pest resistant, but with their large leaves they do prefer a less windy position so they’re not vulnerable to damage.
  • The plant has a range of colours, from the warm pink gold leaves of the original Tropicanna, to the Tropicanna Black’s scarlet-orange flowers and purple-black leaves.
  • You can plant them as a border or put them in a large pot and make them the hero of your patio. You can even grow them indoors, as long as they’re near a brightly lit window.
  • The Canna Tropicanna is the perfect, fuss free coloured feature for your garden.
