Canna, South Pacific Scarlet

Short Description

Stunning red-orange plumes with feathery spikes: a continuous show of sensuous color.

Full Description

One gorgeous breakthrough: the first-ever, high-quality canna you can grow from seed. Sun-loving tropical beauty infuses the border with large, ravishing red-orange-scarlet blooms and alluring deep-green, paddle-shaped foliage. AAS winner blooms and reblooms from early summer well into fall. Each 18-36” tall plant flourishes a half-dozen flowering stems, crowned with 4” gladiolus-type blooms. Compact, vigorous, uniform, well-branched plants prefer heat (best over 77 degrees). Foliage continues to charm when not flowering. Excellent candidate for the sun-splashed border, containers, and the edge of water gardens. Tolerates heat, rain, damp soil and will even endure a bit of frost. Full sun

Canna, South Pacific Scarlet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact plant, Large Blossoms. I started the seeds indoors under fluorescent lights before setting them in a sunny location in the Spring. The seed had excellent germination, and the plants grew relatively quickly. I got blooms early in the first season, probably about 4 months after transplant. Well drained soil and sun speeds of growth dramatically. The plants a had in my clay soil grew slowly, and bloomed in early Fall. This plant is shorter and has much larger blossoms than the compact Tropical series of Cannas. The only drawback to the plant is that the old blossoms need to be removed in some sort of way, otherwise the plant looks messy. The small blossoms in the Tropical series make these dying blossoms less obvious.
