A few words about cannas

Cannas are popular ornamental plants from America, now widespread througout the world with lots of different varieties. They are adaptable perennial plants, that can grow in temperate to tropical conditions. They can thrive even in colder climates, where rhizomes are planted outdoors each spring. In tropical countries they usually rest in the dry season or they behave as evergreens with an unnoticeable rest. They grow in different soils and they love water and nutrients during the growing months.
