I thought I would look at some tropical plants that might do
well here in Hot and Humid Houston, TX I do pretty much all
of my plants in containers because we are renting our house.

So I am looking at plants that stay smaller and can be in a pot
for longer periods of time. It would be nice to get blooming plants
and as I would have them in pots I can manage some inside for the
Winter months.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.

The dwarf cannas are bright and showy and they would winter outside in Houston. I have kept them in pots forever and they do fine with an occasional repotting.

I hadn't thought about a dwarf canna lily
