Canna Happy Wilma Aquatic Pond Plant - Water Canna

Size: 9cm (3 Pack)

Large, bright tangerine orange flowers with burgundy foliage. Compact growing habit.

Canna plants are tropical or subtropical flowering plants known for their bold, large leaves and vibrant, showy flowers. They are grown for both their foliage and their flowers, which come in a wide range of colors including red, orange, yellow, pink, and bi-color combinations. Canna plants typically have tall stems and large, paddle-shaped leaves that create a lush and tropical appearance in gardens or containers.

Care Guide:

Lighting: Canna plants thrive in full sun to partial shade. They require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. However, they can tolerate some shade, particularly during the hottest part of the day in hotter regions.

Water: Canna plants have medium to high water requirements. They prefer consistently moist soil but should not be overwatered. Allow the top few inches of soil to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid waterlogged conditions. Regular deep waterings are beneficial, especially during hot and dry periods.

Soil: Canna plants prefer rich, well-draining soil. A loamy soil with good organic matter content is ideal. If planting in containers, use a high-quality potting mix that retains moisture while providing adequate drainage.

Temperature: Canna plants are tropical or subtropical plants and thrive in warm temperatures. They are typically hardy in USDA hardiness zones 8-11. Plant them outdoors after the last frost date in your area and dig up the rhizomes for overwintering in colder regions. Protect them from frost and freezing temperatures.

Fertilizer: Canna plants are heavy feeders and benefit from regular fertilization. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer or a water-soluble fertilizer formulated for flowering plants. Apply the fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.

Maintenance: Regular maintenance helps keep Canna plants healthy and attractive. Remove any faded flowers or spent flower stalks to promote continuous blooming. Remove yellow or damaged leaves as needed. In colder regions, dig up the rhizomes in late fall after the foliage dies back and store them in a cool, dry place for winter dormancy.

Pests and Diseases: Canna plants are generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, they can occasionally be susceptible to issues such as caterpillars, snails, and slugs. Regularly inspect the plants for any signs of pests or diseases and take appropriate measures if necessary, such as using organic insecticides or removing affected leaves.

Remember that specific care requirements may vary for different Canna cultivars, so it's always a good idea to consult with local gardening resources or seek advice from experienced gardeners for the particular needs of the "Happy Wilma" variety if it is different from the general Canna care guidelines provided here.
