Canna Lilies - as they are often called - are not true lilies. Cannas are produced from Rhizomes and are herbaceous perennials. Canna lily bulbs - as they are often wrongly called - die down each year and are stored for the winter in a dormant state - to be started back into growth the following spring.
They are classed as half hardy, so are not suited to leaving in the ground to overwinter - other than in the warmest countries, where they often grow as wild plants.
The Cannas get their common name from the fact that the seeds are hard - like pellets. As such, they were used as ammunition - stuffed down the barrels of musket rifles when lead shot pellets were scarce! The hard seed coats present a few problems in the propagation of Canna lily bulbs from seeds.
