Marianne Lipanovich added this to 9 Plants With Amazing Foliage for SummerJan 30, 2018

Choose a location in full sun with rich, well-draining soil that is out of strong winds. Set rhizomes horizontally about 2 to 4 inches deep and 1½ to 2 feet apart. Add a slow-release fertilizer at planting time and plan to feed again in midsummer. Provide regular water (C. glauca prefers soil to remain wet).Cut back stems after blooming to encourage more flowers. Divide clumps every three to four years in spring. In colder climates, dig and store bulbs or grow as an annual.Origin: American tropics and subtropicsWhere it will grow: Hardy to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 17.8 degrees Celsius (Zone 7 and above)Mature size: 3 to 6 feet tall; some dwarf varieties reach 2 to 2½ feet tallWater requirement: Regular to ample while growing and bloomingLight requirement: Full sunWhen to plant: Spring, after the danger of frost has passed and the daytime temperature is at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit, or 10 degrees Celsius; in cold-winter climates, start indoors six weeks before the last frost.Learn more about growing canna

Cannas were the first plant I ever mastered. These beginner-proof beauties will give you confidence to move on to other, less forgiving, plants.

Planting notes. While 'Pretoria' is more cold hardy than many tropicals, freezing winters still pose a threat to its survival. Plant in rich, moist and well-drained soil after the last freeze of winter. Once the plant finishes blooming, cut the stems back to promote new growth. If your soil routinely freezes over, either plant 'Pretoria' in a portable planter or dig up the bulbs and move them inside for the season before the first major freeze. While this seems labor intensive, it is the typical treatment of tropicals, and Newman assures that it is well worth the trouble.
