Details
Three of our favorite pet safe flowers come together in this Pet Safe Cannasol™ Canna Lilies bulb collection. Many lilies are toxic to both dogs and cats but Canna Lilies are the exception. At a height of 18-22" tall, plant in containers or any sunny to partially-shaded spot with well-drained soil for non-stop blooms from late spring to first frost. Plant with eyes up and cover with 2" of soil. Space bulbs at 12" apart. Once the bulbs have sprouted keep them well watered and fertilize regularly for best performance. Cut spent flower stalks back to encourage new growth. Other than that, Cannasol™ is a disease resistant, self-cleaning, easy care selection that will jazz up your garden with color. A favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies, deer avoid Canna Lilies. Hardy to zone 7, in colder zones grow as annuals or lift the bulbs in fall and store in a cool (above freezing), dark, ventilated space until spring. 6 plants Total.

Planting Guides
Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll grow quickly and cover the space shown in the planting map. (Maps included only with Pre-Planned Gardens, not Collections.)

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).


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.
