Planting Guides

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.

Growing Canna Lilies: Canna Lily bulbs should be planted as annuals in a sunny spot in the ground or in large containers. Water often, as Canna Lilies enjoy moist ground, though constant wetness isn’t necessary. Lift the bulbs before frost and store in a cool, dry place for re-planting the following spring.

Pros

  • Unknown-they Never Sprout

Cons

  • Small In Size

Best Uses

  • Garden

Comments about High Country Gardens Canna Lily Tropicanna:

Small bulbs were sent too early in the season. When planted, they never grew or even sprouted from the ground. The bulbs received were very small and dry when they arrived, much less fleshy and robust than other cannas I have planted.

Comments about High Country Gardens Canna Lily Tropicanna:

The 2 that bloomed are very beautiful, but when I spend hundreds of dollars on dozens of plants I do expect more than 2 blooms. Our climate and soil must be inappropriate.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Canna Lily Tropicanna:

    I planted bulb last spring in 24" container in morning sun/afternoon shade Zone 9. Plant is smaller than other cannas and slower growing. No flowers yet but wintered beautifully, better than the others. Looks a little small in size pot I chose. Very heat tolerant and cold hardy. Very attractive foilage

    Q & A

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
