Canna lily

i am growing Canna lilies in pots. Will these survive over winter if planted in a border.

    if you live in the south of France probably, however, I take mine in the greenhouse before the first frosts, October? and I live in SE UK fairly near the sea.

  • I live in the southwest and I have tried both methods, the ones in the garden did not survive the winter so I put mine in the summerhouse for the winter.

    Mine don't survive in the ground either, I leave them in their pots over Winter, putting the pots close to a wall for protection, divide them in the Spring.

  • Thank you all for your answers.  That's what I have been doing, looks like I will have to continue bringing them into the conservatory.  I started off with one in a pot two years ago, now I have three large and one small pot.  I have managed to grow several from seeds.
