    I grow cannas in my bog from time to time - never needed fertilizer.

    IMG_0075.JPG A pink/red hardy water lily I picked up a month or so ago. Think it was called razzberry or something.

    I know, I got this lily because of the way the flowers looked when I ordered it online. Usually the flowers don't look quite as perfect as the online pics, but this one does(surprisingly).

    Also, got 2 hardy purple varieties, but their blooms haven't looked quite as good as pictured online. I have to see how they do as summer goes on.

    I have two, they bloom but not often, they grow but slow, the flowers are smallish. But very pretty when they do bloom.

    That is a beautiful lily! Good pick.

    Thanks!
    I love Cannas, I have 2 in the pond and several everywhere else ...They usually do better in dirt, but I never thought to try them bare roots! Make sense since the roots grow so huge, I will definitely try that next year

    the only problem is when they drop seeds and they drop lots of them
