Going to grow this indoors from Sep till May and then put it in the white garden in its pot for the summer months. I might be able to keep it that way. Such a gorgeous foliage plant, and I do miss it. These plants are hardy once established, but they dont do well in strong winds. Nothing with big leaves does. I can’t grow Cannas either.

It might end up staying indoors...

I haven't had this lovely house plant for a long time now.

Strangely enough though, I did buy two new indoor plants yesterday as I used to have quite a few of them in various places.
I chose a Peace Lily and a Maidenhair fern. The garden centre had a lot of new ones in and they were all very tempting!!

Hi Karen, I bought a Canna last year, and with the good summer, 1 of the flowers developed seed [ 7 ] which I sowed on 1st March, I've never grown them from seed before, so can hardly wait to see the results, Derek.

I have this one outside and it's doing ok, nowhere is not windy in my garden. It was an experiment. I don't believe it's growing as fast as it should and looks a bit downbeat, but then it is midwinter.. but keeps going, it's definitely tougher than I thought. Maybe another summer and I might end up bringing it in. I do love these plants.

I didn't know you could have these inside as a house plant mine has spent the winter planted outside in the garden its survived well its so big it would be impossible to bring it indoors now ..

They do get very big in time don’t they. We had a lovely sunny day today, though quite cold. I have been outside for quite a lot of the day and did loads of little jobs. :)

Ours is quite a large shrub now, but it is in the border, survived being moved twice......
