My grandmother’s friend Madge gave me my first Canna Lilies over 30 years ago. This one is called “Yellow King Humber”.
They are a great display of color. They grow quite well in the shade or the sun. I had multiple colors at one time, but now I have this one and a solid yellow. I bought a few bulbs of a peach colored one that might bloom this year.
They die back in the winter but show back up every spring. Some of these are already taller than I am in just a short weeks. If they get out of hand you simply mow them up a few times and then they will not come back in that spot again.
These canna lilies add a bright splash of color to our backyard shade areas.
