Is is okay to transplant cannas right now in the Dallas, TX, area zone 7 or would it be best to wait till spring? Trying to help out a friend and am needing some feedback hopefully today or tomorrow.

Best to you and many thanks,

Hi qf,

Per the FAQ at the Canna Forum:

How and When do I divide cannas?

The best time to divide cannas is in the spring as you are planting them. However, if you are digging them up later in the season for some reason, you may divide them then. They really arent picky. But it is generally best to divide when you know can replant them soon. Divide the rhizomes by cutting them into pieces containing one or more eyes (growing points).
