I just purchased the Cleo plant from this canna family which I put in a big pot for my patio. I have planted canna's before via bulb (or maybe it's a Rhizom) & have been on the internet to get an answer but can find it. I used to dig up my cannas & store for the winter (I'm zone 5 in Indianapolis). Can anyone tell me if I can overwinter this plant. Thanks, Vicki

Welcome!

You will have to store Cleo also.

Thank you Daisyl. The plant was pretty pot bound (I could hear her sigh of relief when I took her out & put in a bigger pot) but did now want to disturb the roots to the degree of seeing if there was a bulb or rhizom within the pot. Do you know if I overwinter it like other cannas that I have planted right into the ground? I am big on the internet on answers but just can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

It is a hybrid variety of canna so, just a fancy version of the old plant. Treat it just the same as you do your other cannas.
