Canna Lily Tropicanna Black ~ Tropicanna Black Canna Lily

Canna Lily Tropicanna Black is spectacular with just its deep red to almost black foliage but add in the red flowers and what a statement a plant can make. The foliage develops a bit of green in a darker setting. The bright orange flowers are produced from late Spring through hard frost. Canna Lily Tropicanna Black prefers regular irrigation and well drained soil with full sun. But this is a Canna and these plants are far sturdier than they might look. They will take a summer break if there isn't enough water or a winter break if it gets too cold. Canna Lily Tropicanna Black will bloom in a shady entrance, albeit with much less vigor than in full sun but the foliage is still extravagant. Canna Tropicanna Black is frost tolerant down to 0° F with a thick layer of mulch over the root zone.
