Native to South America (and Florida), Canna are tropical plants but grow well in the hot, humid weather of summer months as well. The seeds from the plant are used as beads in jewelry in some countries. In other countries in Latin America, they add the seeds to their tortillas. And in the West Indies the roots of certain varieties are used as a starch.
So naturalize Canna into southern gardens or add a tropical touch to northern gardens in the summer months. The foliage adds a welcome texture to any garden and what’s best is Canna attract hummingbirds!
