    Frequently Asked Questions

    Canna City of Portland bulbs are a type of flowering plant that features showy, large blooms in a vibrant shade of coral pink. These plants are native to tropical and subtropical regions but can be grown in various climates with proper care.

    To grow Canna City of Portland bulbs, start by planting the bulbs 4-6 inches deep and 18-24 inches apart in well-draining, fertile soil. Ensure the planting site receives full sun for optimal growth. Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist. Fertilize monthly during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer to encourage healthy growth and abundant blooms. Stake the plants if needed to support their height and prune faded flowers to promote continuous blooming.

    The ideal time to plant Canna City of Portland bulbs is in the spring, after the last frost has passed and soil temperatures have warmed to around 60°F (15°C). Planting in the spring allows the bulbs to establish their roots and grow throughout the warm summer months.

    City of Portland cannas are winter hardy in USDA climates zone 7-10. If you live within these warmer hardiness zones, you can also plant the bulbs in the fall. However, in colder climates, it's essential to dig up and store the bulbs indoors over the winter to prevent them from freezing and dying.

    To overwinter Canna City of Portland bulbs in colder climates, follow these steps:

    •Wait until the first frost has killed the foliage.
    •Cut the stems back to about 4-6 inches above the ground.
    •Carefully dig up the bulbs, taking care not to damage the roots.
    •Gently brush off excess soil and let the bulbs dry for a few days in a well-ventilated area.
    •Store the bulbs in a cool, dark, and dry place, such as a basement or garage, with temperatures between 40-50°F (4-10°C). Place the bulbs in a container filled with peat moss, sawdust, or vermiculite to help retain moisture.
    • Check the bulbs periodically for signs of rot or mold and remove any affected bulbs to prevent the spread of disease.

    If you live in a warmer area, such as USDA climate zone 7 or higher, you can leave the Canna bulbs in the ground. Just mulch them up when it's wintertime.

    While no plant is entirely deer-proof, Canna City of Portland bulbs are considered deer-resistant. The plants contain compounds that are unpalatable to deer, making them less likely to be eaten.

    However, if food sources are scarce, deer may still nibble on the plants. To further deter deer from your garden, consider using deer-resistant companion plants, installing deer fencing, or applying deer repellents.

    Deer browsing habits can vary by region and population, so it's important to monitor your plants for any signs of damage.

    Canna City of Portland bulbs are known to attract a variety of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The plants' large, showy flowers provide an abundant source of nectar, which serves as an essential food source for these beneficial insects and birds. By including Canna City of Portland bulbs in your garden, you can contribute to a healthier ecosystem by supporting local pollinator populations.
