Plant Features

Canna Lily generalis 'The President' is a timeless classic, celebrated for its vibrant red-orange blooms and expansive, lush foliage. These striking flowers, which persist from mid-summer through to frost, are a magnet for hummingbirds drawn to their nectar-rich allure. While it is renowned for its bright and sizable blooms, it is somewhat more compact in growth compared to the larger cannas, making it an ideal choice for those with limited space but a desire for a tropical ambiance. This variety, with its deep historical ties, has even adorned the White House Garden. When planted en masse at the back of borders or housed in containers, its lance-shaped leaves create a commanding presence, enhancing any garden or outdoor living space.

Plant Care: Plant bulbs after the last expected frost. For in-ground plants, water every two days; container plants need daily watering. Prune spent flower stalks to their attachment point and trim non-flowering stalks to soil level. In freezing areas, after the first frost, cut stalks to the ground and store the roots for winter.

Canna Lily Companion Plants: Begonia, Calibrachoa, Coleus, Dahlias, Geraniums, Lobelia, Petunias, Sweet Alyssum, Torenia, Verbena, Zinnias
