CANNA INDICA, Indian Shot Canna, Brilliant Red, Very Showy, Very Easy Sun Lovers, Lush and Tropical, 100 Seeds, Homegrown and Handpicked
100 FRESH SEEDS, HOME GROWN AND HAND PICKED AND CLEANED
Very easy to grow, Cannas love sun (even in Texas) and will tolerate some shade and most types of soil.
They look great in containers or planted in the landscape, and hummingbirds love them.
THIS ONE WILL MAKE A FABULOUS SUMMERTIME SCREEN around pools, on a fence line, etc....very lush and tropical looking.
The blooms on this species canna are a refreshing contrast to the huge heavy petals of the hybrids--and they come true from seed. VERY showy, with the long stems holding the light, graceful, dazzling red flowers well above the foliage and like a glowing crown.
The seeds are jet black and hard like marbles, and for centuries have been drilled and used as beads and buttons.
Perennial and a fast multiplier, frost will knock it to the ground for winter, but it returns robustly as soon as spring warms the ground.
This one ranges from 4-7 feet tall in full sun, and above 8 feet tall when it's planted in light to medium shade.
THESE SEEDS ARE FROM THIS FALL FOR THIS SEASON, and are very fresh.
They may be stored in the fridge until planting.
TO GERMINATE, SEEDS SHOULD BE SOAKED IN WARM TO HOT WATER OVERNIGHT (at least) to as much as 48 hours before planting in starter pots. I have customers who "scrub" a spot on each seed against sand paper before soaking to compromise the hard seed coat and speed up germination. Then keep them moderately moist, but not soggy.
Germination time: variable, about 3 weeks to as long as 3 months. PATIENCE REQUIRED.
Garden spacing: 12" or more, especially in southern zones, they do multiply quickly and grow FAST.
Bloom time: mid to late spring until frost....VIBRANT COLOR ALL SUMMER LONG.
Height: 5 to 8+ feet, depending on soil, watering and light.
Zones: 6 - 11, perennial in zones 7 - 11, should be potted farther north and sheltered over winter.
I CAN MAKE BULK QUANTITIES AVAILABLE IN SOME OF THE SEEDS I OFFER, AND WELCOME INQUIRIES!

Shipping & policies
We ship the same or next day after payment clears, unless other arrangements are made.
We love the United States Postal Service for shipping. We will be glad to offer you whatever level of USPS service you prefer or require, from economy to express...with the exception of live plants.
Live plants will ship on Mondays and Tuesdays, only, by Priority Mail, at the minimum, so they arrive in viable, healthy condition.
We also have ready access to UPS and FedEx, and will certainly use either of those services, if that is the preference of our customer.
Larger and heavier packages, however, are shipped FedEx Ground, which generally means they arrive in 3 to 5 business days.
Larger and higher priced orders will be insured. We do not like the idea of either our customer or the Studio taking a loss for damages incurred in transit.
If your goods need to be delivered outside the continental US, please contact us and let us get you a shipping quote.
All our prices are posted in US dollars (USD).
PayPal is our default method of payment. We can also accept credit cards and are perfectly willing to discuss other modes of transferring funds.
Payment is due at checkout. Custom contracts require a 50% down payment to initiate, once agreement has been reached regarding designs and costs. We will supply email updates regarding the progress of work at its various stages, with a final update and invoice for the balance due at completion of the work. Balances must be satisfied before orders are shipped. Works with balances due for longer than 7 days will be "put on the shelves" and made available to everyone as part of the Studio's inventory.
Returns & exchanges
Honestly, this has never happened to me, but I must address the possibility. I do love a happy customer.

Refund or exchange for equal value of full purchase price will be made upon the return of merchandise.
All return shipping/insurance fees are the customer's responsibility.
