Needless to say, the cannas were looking terrible. Even in a shady spot like this, they still get a fair amount of morning sun, and were getting sunburned.
The solution, fortunately, is easy. I just laid out a tarp and am cutting them back down to the ground. Where I see some strong, young growth, I am leaving the stalk. But there really isn't much. After I've done the cutting, I will clean up and apply some fresh potting soil. The area will look bare for only a few days - cannas grow fast! Just add water!
Excuse me, I want to get out there and do more trimming. Before I get sunburned!
