Cannas Lilies in N.E.Tennessee
There were two plants (near corner column) when I moved here ten years ago!
Out of over 100 collected seeds, in October, I could only get a couple dozen to germinate in damp paper towels before rooting with potting soil in egg cartons.
Come mid December transferred the seedlings to upstairs neighbors discarded gal. milk jugs (cut tops off)
Got them in the ground in April. The next year I was able to break up the clumps (split rhizomes)
Now I almost have Cannas coming out of my ears 😉 all around the house!
