Description / Canna Tropicanna® Gold Bulb

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit 2002; Aalsmeer International Flower Trade Show, Holland, 1999, Winner 1st Prize

Embrace the summer with the striking Canna Tropicanna® Gold. Planting this canna lily in spring sets the stage for a dazzling display of variegated green-and-gold-striped foliage, crowned by distinctive soft-orange flowers with yellow highlights. As the Canna Tropicanna Gold blooms from midsummer into fall, its robust flower spikes become a beacon for butterflies and hummingbirds, enriching your garden's biodiversity and beauty.

As a standout example of tropical elegance, the Canna Tropicanna Gold flourishes under the sun. This herbaceous tender perennial is characterized by its fast growth and dense, upright, clumping form. The Tropicanna Gold Canna is a perfect companion for annuals and perennials that echo its exotic charm. Thriving alongside water features or in boggy areas, it forms an impressive backdrop or screen, making any garden setting a theatrical display of color and texture. It is particularly striking as the central thriller in any thriller-filler-spiller container arrangement.

Caring for the Canna Gold is straightforward and rewarding. It prospers in full sunlight, planted in organically rich, moist, yet well-drained soil, though it shows resilience in less ideal conditions, including partial shade and poorly drained soils. To maintain its splendid appearance, regular watering and feeding with compost or organic fertilizer are recommended, alongside the benefit of its disease-resistant nature.

For gardeners in Zones 7-11, the Canna Tropicanna Gold can be easily managed over winter by cutting it back to ground level. In contrast, those in Zones 3-6 should prepare the plant for colder months by trimming and storing the rhizomes in a cool, dry place after drying. With the arrival of warmer spring temperatures, the rhizomes can be divided and replanted, heralding another season of vibrant growth and color.

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.
