WooHoooo! Dawn Pink is going to bloom any minute. Every time I walk among my cannas, I find a new bud. So far, I have spotted them on Cardinal Sinn, Edna Tulip, Orange Punch and Panache. There is a good chance some of these will be open tomorrow.

Collecting Canna Seeds

I'm collecting seeds from my canna plants. The seed pod forms at the base of the flower. If it is fertile, it will grow larger. Don't pick until the pod is completely dry and starting to crack. The seeds are dark and round. Notch the seeds with a file and then soak them for 48 hours. Plant 1/2" deep.

Canna Land is that wonderful tropical paradise I wish to have in my backyard. It is a magical sunny place of inviting color, sparkling water and fragrant breezes. Canna Land is a fantasy moving toward reality. This blog will chronicle that journey.
