rapidly, so you will have more to plant next spring, or to share
with family and friends. Do not divide the clumps until you are
ready to plant them next spring.
Storing Canna Rhizomes
Pack the clumps
in slightly moistened (NOT dripping wet!) peat moss or sawdust.
Avoid piling the clumps on top of one another. Store the
rhizomes in a cool, dry area away from sunlight, such your
basement or the inner wall of an attached garage.
Planting of Cannas
rhizomes next spring. Make sure that each division has at least
one growing point. You can pot some of them up six to eight
weeks before the last expected frost — mid- to late May — to get
a jump on the season. Save some to plant directly in the ground
once we are past danger of a hard frost to extend the season of
