Slender and graceful, the true red blooms of Firebird perch atop 3 foot plants. These are perfect candidates for large containers; make sure to place near areas where you walk or relax as Firebird draws in hummingbirds. And you want to see them up close, right? A fast grower, Firebird loves heat and humidity. This canna displays smokey purple flower buds set against medium green leaves.
Tall cannas tend to look best when planted in groups of three or more. Shorter varieties work well in mixed planters where they shine as the central plant surrounded by shorter partners with fluffy or strappy foliage profiles.
