Canna Red is a popular flowering plant that is prized for its bright red blooms and bold foliage. It is native to tropical regions of the Americas and is a great choice for gardeners who want to add a touch of tropical glamour to their outdoor space. Here is a description of Canna Red that is suitable for a UK garden centre website:
Best position: Canna Red is a sun-loving plant that prefers a warm and sheltered spot in the garden. It can tolerate some shade but will produce fewer flowers in these conditions. It is best planted in a moist, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Canna Red is also a good choice for container gardening as it will thrive in a large pot on a sunny patio.
Flowering time: Canna Red flowers from mid-summer until the first frosts of autumn. It produces large, showy flowers in shades of bright red, that are sure to add a splash of colour to your garden. These flowers are highly attractive to pollinators and will help to support the biodiversity of your outdoor space.
When to feed: Canna Red is a hungry plant that will benefit from regular feeding throughout the growing season. Use a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early spring and then supplement with a liquid fertiliser every two weeks during the summer months.
When to prune: Canna Red does not require pruning as such, but you can remove spent flowers and dead foliage to keep the plant looking tidy. If you live in an area with cold winters, you may need to cut the plant back to ground level in the autumn and store the rhizomes in a frost-free location until the spring.
