Re: Re: Cannas in zone 7?

When I lived in Maryland, I had some in a very protected area next to the house, and they survived several years, but then, like you had a colder than usual winter and they were history.

(and colder for a longer time) than the previous ones.

When I overwintered them in the basement I layered them in tubs in slightly
damp soil additive (it's a light sort of leafy compost sold here to mix with
the heavy clay soil). I'll remember the brand name later, I'm sure...

Maryland zone 6.

Chris...I live in Zone 6 and they SAY that cannas are not supposed to
overwinter here either. Tell that to my cannas. They ALL survive the
winters here and have for the past 4 years. You should leave a few out
and see how they do over the winter.
