What is a Canna Lily?
The Canna Lily is treated as an annual in Minnesota due to its tropical sun-loving nature liking an average of 6-8 hours of sunlight. Coming in a variety of colors like bright orange, yellow, or red with bright green or dark burgundy foliage, the Canna Lily is hard to miss in your garden bed or container garden.
The Canna Lily is hardy in Zones 8-11 and would not be able to withstand our chilly winters. Therefore, it is grown as an annual in Minnesota as a fun tropical, soaking up our summer heat. However, it is a colorful summer bulb.
