Hi, Irwin.  What zone are you in, and did you grow your Canna outside
through winter?  I just love 'Bengal Tiger', but I have no luck digging and
storing tender bulbs.  I have never seen anyone up here leave their Cannas
out for the winter, but I have never seen a Bengal Tiger in person, either.
 Do you have any tips for keeping the bulbs (rhizomes?) from drying up
after digging?
