Just picked up a small Canna with 2 leaf clumps. I will keep it indoors now. Do the leaves die down to yellow & go green again in the spring?

On plant Canna



Keep it somewhere frost free rather than as a houseplant - the leaves die down completely over winter and the plant starts growing anew in spring.

Got me again......There's me thinking the leaves would be a nice asset now

Ah! Well its worth keeping for next year, and you can keep it for a while as it is, even outside, until it starts to die back - you'll probably find it needs a bigger pot next year, its amazing how much the bulb grows...
