any suggestions on overwintering my water cannas?
keep wet under a flourescent light in my basement or can they be overwintered in a dark frost free crawl space like my normal canna tubers?

I leave mine in the pond year round...

RE: overwintering water cannas

since they are at the surface of the water, my pond definately freezes solid down for at least a foot, which would mean the tubers would be frozen solid as well, That doesnt kill them?????

I certainly cant leave my terrestrial cannas in the ground

RE: overwintering water cannas

My pond is about 18" deep. I'm not sure how deep it freezes but this particular plant has been around for at least 6 years.

I would take them out and do with them the same as your other cannas.
