I posted in April with a title “Canna Have Another”. Here it is a short two months later, and I am singing, “Canna Believe IT!” The Canna ‘Bengal Tiger” was planted in a large pot soon after purchase , and yesterday began to bloom.
It is spectacular! I have another growing in the ground in the front yard and it will be interesting to see which one is happier in the long run. I am still fine tuning my gardening habits in this Zone 8 climate. Will the heat of the Summer be easier on a potted plant or one in the ground?
In my Savannah garden, the angelonia and snapdragons laugh at the heat and humidity and the shrimp plant laughs too while enticing hummingbirds. I hope they continue to laugh when I leave them on their own with an automatic sprinkler as their babysitter….I am headed back to New Mexico soon!
