Yellow Canna Flower

Flower Garden – Part XII – Canna

Isn’t it bright and beautiful?

Canna often comes in these bright yellow, orange, red colors which makes them very attractive. The unique petal (stamen) structure mimicking lilies adds to its beauty.

Canna is very easy to grow and loves bright sunlight.

Use a wide pot when potting these plants. Click here to know more.

This one is again one of those low maintenance plants. Add sufficient compost while potting them so that you don’t have to add compost later on. Adding compost later on by digging the soil around plants may at times harm the upcoming new shoot.

Flower Garden – Part III – Pentas

Here comes my most favorite flowering plant. The PENTAS. No words are enough to describe the beauty of this flower. Just go and get hundreds of them.. Go now… Runn…

So here’s why this one has been my favorite over the years:

Its very strong and sturdy.

Has amazing beautiful small flowers in bunches.

Blooms throughout the year.

Comes in various colors.

It highly resistant to any disease or pest attacks.

Thrives well in partial sunlight and shade.

Humming birds, sun-birds and butterflies love them.

Needs very less manure/compost. If you’re potting your plant as recommended, adding manure once in every 45-60 days is enough.

Happy Gardening 🙂
