One of my weekend tasks will not be to thin them. Just like thinning carrots, the idea is to go through and cut back a few in-between plants to allow the rest of them more room to grow strongly. These canna, which are Canna Tropicanna, by the way, get to be about six feet tall and grow very strongly. I started with just a handful a couple of years ago, and like all bulbs, they multiplied.
Oh yeah, cannas love water and fertilizer, so give them plenty of both. Then stand back!
