Canna Semi Dwarf 'Lucifer' 2-3 eye root
Common Name: Canna Lily, ‘Lucifer’
Regarded as one of the best bicolor cannas, 'Lucifer' has full-size blooms on mostly dwarf plants. Attractive foliage with bright red blooms that are tipped in yellow. Once in bloom Cannas will bloom till frost. Cannas make great cut flower 7 foliage.
Ideal for water gardens, ponds and bogs. They thrive near water and in wet boggy areas where other plants will not grow. Cannas bloom in the summer through till the fall.
Size: Rhizome, 2-3 eye
Light Requirement : Full Sun to Partial Shade. Bloom best in full sun.
Soil Type: It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth, but will die in standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soils.
Hardiness Zones: 8,9,10,11,12
Attributes: Deer Resistant, Attracts Bees, Attracts Butterflies, Attracts Hummingbirds, Fast Growth, Showy Flower, Showy Foliage, Cut Flower, Cut Foliage, Rebloomer, Long Bloom
Care: Occasional Care, Remove flower stalks when they have finished blooming.
Bulbs: Before the first frost bulbs should be removed from the ground, cleaned off, and stored indoors in a dry area. The bulbs can be replanted outdoors in spring, after the ground warms to 50 degrees or more or started inside early. If starting inside do this around early April. Water sparingly until sings of life start. I find it useful to place the root in a bag of lightly moist potting soil and place this bag on a south facing windowsill. Cannas love heat so this method works well and is very quick.
