Plant Type: Water Gardening

The Orange Variegated Canna, also known as Variegated Water Canna and the Bengal Tiger Canna is a tropical Bog Plant. Water cannas strongly resemble the land canna varieties. The large, dramatic, tropical yellow and green striped foliage of the Orange Variegated Canna resemble the leaves of a banana tree. Stunningly beautiful, bold, bright orange flowers with brilliant maroon edges bloom in summer.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:


Cannas are best grown in full sun and in rich, fertile soil. Pot in 5-gallon containers and set in water 6 inches over crowns in sun to part shade. Remove from the pond in the autumn and maintain as tropical houseplants until spring. Rhizomes can also be housed free of soil, dried, and stored in a cool, dark area as is done with land canna.
