Here's one for you - I did a google.com search for how to grow confederate rose from seed:

http://www.ehow.com/how_5618755_grow-confederate-rose.html

Do as I did, and google each kind of seed for 'how to' instructions.

Thanks KayJones. Sometimes I wonder if those websites are that reliable. If you recommended it then I'll check it out! :)

What also might be helpful is doing a search for these seeds within Garden Web. Chances are, somebody has already posted about how to grow these specific plants, and you might be able to find some more information from people who have experience with the plants.

Hey Christine, the canna lily seeds need to be nicked or filed to expose just a bit of the white or green inside. then you can plant them in pots, cups or the ground about an inch deep and water good the first time and then when the soil feels dry to the touch. I always put mine in a vice grip wrench and file on one spot until the black is worn away and the white or green is exposed. It only has to be a tiny spot. I hope this works out for you. Joel
