We had a freak snow storm last weekend in Denver and my Tropicana Canna's leaves are
now black. Can I save it for this year or should I just dig it up and plant it next year?

Oh no! A late May snow! We had one of those here in Vermont, too!

You can remove the damaged leaves, and hope that the bulb will put out more growth. The plant may not have the oomph to flower this year, but hopefully it will produce enough new leaves to rejuvenate the bulb so that it will produce flowers next summer. Best of luck!
