Canna Rose Canna x Generalis is a perennial that is native to sub-tropical and tropical parts of North and South America. Canna Rose seeds germinate quickly if they are soaked for 24-48 hours prior sowing. Canna Lily and Indian Shot are other common names of this plant. Rose Canna features dark-green foliage with large, banana-like leaves that are tropical-looking and blooms with large, exotic-looking rose flowers. Canna x Generalis is ornamental hybrid of Canna Lily, and its extremely showy blooms appear continuously from late spring or early summer to frost.
Canna Rose is a perfect plant to grow in wet areas such as pool sides. Canna Lily is great for container planting and for growing along foundations or in front of walls and hedges. Canna x Generalis seeds can be filed or nicked for the fast germination, and this lily plant performs best in full sun and rich, moist to wet soil. The regular watering is very important for this plant. Canna Lily is one of the best cut flowers that makes a good addition to any floral arrangement.
