Tropicanna is one of the hardier cannas, considered reliably so down to about 10 degrees Farenheit. Depending on your microclimate, you might be able to leave it outside successfully if covered with a good thick layer of mulch. If you definitely do not want to risk losing it, then you would need to dig and store it each fall.
