The Q&A Archives: Very Tall Cannas

Question: Where Can I Find 16ft. Cannas? I Saw Them One Time, but Don't Remember Where.

Answer: After a quick search I find that Plant Delights Nursery ( or Phone: (919) 772-4794 / Fax: (919) 662-0370 / Email: ) offers Canna 'Musafolia' ( Banana Canna ) which runs to 14 feet according to their catalog. Do remember however that cannas will only reach or surpass their estimated heights if grown in ideal conditions: a long growing season, full sun, ample water and very rich soil. For example, a "tall" canna grown in a cooler climate such as England might reach only half of its potential height.
