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).

Details
Canna ‘Fire Dragon’ packs a big punch with its quick growing green tropical leaves and prolific scarlet red blooms. Flowering from June to frost, it adds rich color to a sunny, well-drained spot where it can be kept moist. This tall but compact lily is perfect near an entry, along a back border, or as a focal point. Interestingly, the leaf shape of canna lilies catches moisture condensation, acting as a drinking fountain for small birds and insects in the early morning. The result of a dedicated breeding program, ‘Fire Dragon’ is one of the very best Cannas available. No need to deadhead, the flowers self-clean. 48-60" tall x 36" wide. Good for Firescaping

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.
