The Cannas are going to Seed

Now is a great time to collect the seeds for next year before the frost sends them away. Cannas love to multiply from their tuber, and if you want to plant them in another location, collect the seed pod (fuzzy, brown) and just nick the seed (hard, pea-like, black) and soak in warm water before starting indoors…such a pretty plant and such a good sport (disease resistant). They are truly one of my favorite natives of South Carolina. These got my attention yesterday when a hummingbird buzzed me to get out of her way. They love cannas, too.
