Growing Cannas and Gladiola for the first time (regional district). Can I leave them in the ground over winter here or do they need to come out till spring?
Don’t know about Glads but we have had success for the past two or three winters leaving our Cannas in the ground. They are facing sw against the house and under the eaves. We are up by Costco so probably about a zone 7
I leave my Gladiolas in and they do fine and multiply which is great. I have always taken my Cannas in as they are in pots.
I had Canna lilies in another house in Comox, which I left in the ground over winter. They also faced south-west and were against the front of the house, so benefitted from any warmth there was in the winter sun. They were also under the eaves and didn’t get drenched in the rains.
What did you decide to do?
