Edible - Large Attractive Purple Foliage, Canna indica L. syn. C. edulis - A mix with large, attractive purple 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 needs 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
