Dwarf Canna Vanilla Cream

Dwarf Canna Vanilla Cream

Sure to become a landscape favorite, this creamy white canna will thrill garden visitors with its unusual flower color and lush green foliage. Growing only 2-3' tall, Vanilla Cream is an ideal variety for drawing attention to sunny borders and low beds. For an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance specimen planting, try it as a potted plant to enjoy on a patio, terrace or deck. Plant two container gardens and use them to flan a sunlit entrance. The flowers are spectacular to behold, especially when in full bloom. Dwarf cannas are fast growing and can be easily started indoors as early as February. The gorgeous flowers will appear in summer after you have moved the plants outside after the last spring frost. Deer resistant.
