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
Cannasol™ Happy Julia® Canna Lily heats up summer with sizzling red flowers and elegant dark green and bronze foliage. At 18-22" tall it is a perfect focal point in the garden, or a dramatic edge along a path. Plant en masse (12" spacing) for big bold color all summer long. Perfect for containers too. Plant the bulbs in a sunny to partially shady spot in well-drained soil that can be kept moist. They love high heat and humidity making them an excellent choice for color in the warmest parts of your garden. Once the soil has warmed in the spring, plant the bulb eye-side up and cover with 2" of compost and fertilizer enriched soil. Once growth starts be sure to keep them moist and fertilize regularly through the growing season. Interestingly, the shape of canna’s leaves cause them to collect small amounts of dew and moisture making them sources of early morning water for insects and small birds. Hummingbirds and butterflies love canna lilies, deer avoid them.

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.
