Description / 'Australia' Canna Lily Bulb

'Australia' Canna Lily stands as the pinnacle of black-leafed elegance in any garden setting, heralded as one of the finest of its kind. For those who value the exquisite, satiny sheen and captivating allure of its deep burgundy-black foliage, 'Australia' is an indispensable gem. These thick, waxy leaves are resilient through the peak of summer, proudly retaining their vibrant hue without a hint of fading or greening. Complementing its foliage, 'Australia' unfurls a succession of bright orange-red blooms, each 3 to 4 inches in width and delightfully ruffled, capturing the gaze of all who pass by.

These striking flowers emerge from the plant's heart on tall, robust stalks, proving irresistible in a vase and continuing their show from the early summer months well into the fall. This vivid display contrasts magnificently against the dark, shiny leaves, adorned with prominent veins for a truly spectacular garden feature.

Rising to a stately 4 to 5 feet in height and spreading approximately 12 to 18 inches wide, 'Australia' Canna Lily creates an imposing visual whether lined up in sequence or showcased individually. Designed for the heat, it excels where other plants might falter, with leaves that emerge in a true, rich black, inviting touch and closer admiration for their unique texture and form.

Ideal for enhancing pool areas, sunny patios, or along exposed pathways, 'Australia' Canna Lily also adapts gracefully to slight shade, making it a versatile addition to the rear of traditional perennial gardens, mingling with sun-loving species like black-eyed-susan.

Plant 'Australia' Canna Lily in locations that receive full sun to light shade, in any well-drained soil, to witness its swift and fuss-free growth. This plant's hardiness ranges from the southern regions of zone 7 through to zone 10. In colder climates, it's advisable to overwinter the plant indoors, ready for a glorious return each spring.

Stunning canna has tropical blooms and showy foliage, while they're not true lilies, they grow from rhizomes and so are easy to plant, divide, and take up if you're in a cooler hardiness zone. Find the details for growing cannas in our Canna Care Guide.
