One of the most popular and easy to grow perennials is the Canna Lily. These are big leafy showy plants with big colorful flowers at the tip of the stalk.

For example if you want to use Cannas on a patio to give it a festive and tropical feel, try the dwarf variety. The grow well in pots and can be moved around in different locations. You can also dig holes in your garden and bury landscaping pots up to the rim and move when necessary. Cannas are a great plant to mix and match. Mixing the dwarf, tall growing, and low growing and also mixing the flowering types, such as gladiolus or orchid.
