Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact’

Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact’ is a striking perennial known for its bold foliage and vibrant flowers. This compact variety reaches a height of 90-120 cm (3-4 feet), making it ideal for smaller gardens, containers, and borders. It thrives in full sun and prefers rich, well-drained soil, performing best in a sheltered position to protect its large leaves from strong winds.

Flowering from mid-summer to early autumn, Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact’ produces stunning orange blooms that stand out against its dramatic, striped leaves of burgundy, green, and purple. This combination of vivid flowers and colourful foliage adds a tropical touch to any garden.

Pruning Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact’ involves removing spent flower stalks to encourage continuous blooming. In autumn, after the first frost, cut back the foliage to ground level. In colder regions, lift the rhizomes and store them in a cool, dry place over winter to protect them from frost. Feeding is essential for this hungry plant; apply a high-potash fertiliser every month during the growing season to support lush growth and abundant flowering.

Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact’ is beneficial for bees and other pollinators. Its large, open flowers provide an excellent source of nectar, making it an attractive addition to a wildlife-friendly garden. By planting Canna Lily ‘Durban Compact,’ you not only enhance your garden’s visual appeal but also support local pollinators and promote biodiversity
