Thalia Dealbata Hardy Water canna
Plant for large ponds as it is a very large plant that grows about 6’ tall.
The bold dramatic foliage reminds of Bird of Paradise leaves.
The lavender/purple flowers come up on long thin stems and add an air of grace to the pond.
Flowering time is July, August and September.
Hardy zone 5 or higher. Winters in the home in lesser zones

Works well in wetland and low lying moist boggy areas.
These plants are shallow water plants, meaning they want the top of the pot even with or slightly above the water level.
