So that was July. Good riddance.
I noticed this Canna in flower today. It's one I grew from seed back in 2010.
Cannas are easy from seed as long as you use a clippers to penetrate their shell. They have the common name of Indian Shot as they are so hard they were used, when bullets ran out, in blunderbusses in the 18th century.
Some Cannas will flower the same year from seed but they certaily won't reach their full potential in year one. They're certainly worth trying.
