Canna indica L, Edible - A mix with large, attractive Green foliage (2 mtr tall) & various coloured mixed flowers and edible rhizomes. One of the richest starch sources, its starchy rhizomes are eaten cooked & taste like a potato when peeled & baked, or parsnip when roasted. Its advantage is tolerating both very damp & hot, dry soils once established, are pest-free & perennial, but need winter protection by storing rhizomes like dahlias. Tropical, yet can grow in most areas with 6–8 hrs sunlight during summer & grows best in well-drained (rich or sandy) soil (Protect in Winter so best in a pot)., Seed Count Approx - 5 avg 

  SOWING - Start in pots in the greenhouse, plant out after frosts in early spring,. Not exacting in its climatic needs, except cannot withstand prolonged exposure to strong winds & can be grown on most soils except heavy clay, (Protect in Winter so best in a pot). Not Hardy
