Taroudant Canna Lily Plants are herbaceous plants that grow pointed oval leaves on tall canes that produce gorgeous flower clusters of wide, curled blooms in bright orange with darker orange spots. Taroudant Canna Lily Plants grow to about four feet tall and their bases spread from rhizome sports which can fill a six foot diameter bed in a season. Taroudant Cannas begin to bloom in late spring or early summer and continue to produce flowers until the first frost of winter.
Not only are Taroudant Canna Lily Plants decorative, but the starchy roots, vegetative leaves, and new shoots of Taroudant Canna Lily Plants are edible. Cannas have been cultivated as food by civilizations as old as those in ancient Peru. They are recommended for growing in-ground in USDA Zones 8 to 11, and in containers in Zones 4 to 11. Taroudant Cannas do best in full sun, but can grow in partial shade as well. Add this exotic flowering edible to your garden and enjoy summer-long color and an ancient food source in your own back yard.
