Question: If i palnt cannas do i need to remove palnts in wintermonth or it will be ok in ground?

Answer: Bhavini,

In your area around Houston cannas will die back to the ground and then come up again the next spring. You can mulch them a little if you like. When the first freeze kills the tops back cut them off about 4 inches above the ground and apply a little mulch to the soil surface.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
