    Probably the rubbish weather. Are you growing them in containers?

    There are a lot of cannas in the display beds on roundabouts in Norwich, they are blooming beautifully even this year, and look fantastic.  They will be taken in when the weather turns really cold and planted out again next summer, as usual.
