First Year from Seed w/pictures

16 years ago

I've seen a few posts regarding whether or not it's worth it to grow cannas from seed. I started several varieties last February and while not all of them bloomed, the majority of varieties gave me at least one bloom before the end of the saeson. Here's a few of my favorite pics, click to enlarge:

I also ended up with virus on three plants, the closest known canna collection upwind from me is about a block away. The virus only appeared on ajoining plants that had direct exposure to southwesterly winds, I threw those cannas away and plan to plant another plant at that walkway opening next season.


I think it was worth the effort and I'm going to sow some more varieties next month. Hope you've enjoyed the pictures!
