Blooms just 3 months after sowing

The popular Tropical series of dwarf cannas boasts a stunning bronzy-burgundy leaved variety—the first-ever dark-leafed canna from seed. Sporting brilliant scarlet blooms in addition to its colorful foliage, it's a great addition to containers, the border, edging, and any sunny spot.

Tropical Bronze Scarlet has the same big, fiery-scarlet 3- to 4-inch blooms found on giant cannas, but on a lush 2½-foot plant compact enough to grow in a container. And it blooms in just 90 days from seed—quick, economical, and so beautiful.

The bright blooms begin in midsummer and continue into fall, going to frost in some areas and all the way through winter in subtropical regions. So showy.

Like all cannas, Tropical Bronze Scarlet loves moist, damp, or even wet soils. It's a great waterside planting, and it doesn't mind the boggy conditions that most plants abhor. Find the perfect sun-soaked, moist spot for this beauty and get ready for years of enjoyment.

Space plants 18 inches apart in the garden.
