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.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Tropicanna Canna Lily Bulb:

    First of all I am a Avid gardener and have grown and stored many different canna lily bulbs over the years, but the bulbs I have received from High Country Gardens are the smallest most pathetic bulbs I have ever received. I paid high dollar for a single bulb and I doubt that it will ever grow, looks dead and small I ordered seven of these plants and only one bulb is acceptable. If I could show you pictures you would not order these. I spent 85.00 for one decent bulb out of seven. Never again. They have been planted in containers inside to get a jump on growth and only the one has shown any growth.

    Bought 2 extra large planters especially for these cannas. Filled them with new potting soil and the only thing that grew was weeds!!! In both. Very Disappointed

      The first bulb order did nothing, remained dormant. I called the company and got it replaced. The replacement went into leaf, but remained quite small and did not bloom. Very disappointing.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Tropicanna Canna Lily Bulb:

      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.

      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.

        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

        Suggested Companion Plants:

        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).
