Canna Tropicana Black

Can anyone help me out? I've just obtained a Canna Tropicana Black and am unsure about where to plant it. I'd like to plant it in wet soil as I've heard that these plants can be planted in ponds- not sure about this variety though.  The area in question is permanently a little boggy because of spring water run off. Would it be alright here? Any advice is gratefully received, thanks.

    Boggy should be fine. [ some Cannas will grow in water ]

    Full sun and lots of feeding.

    Don't forget to dig it up in the autumn as they are not hardy.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
  • Thank you, any other opinions?
