Large yellow blooms fill Toucan Yellow Canna Lily all summer, bringing hummingbirds to visit and resisting munching deer. This bright and versatile Canna Lily is a great addition to large containers or the landscape, especially in rain gardens or bogs. Add a tropical feel to a sunny garden without having to max out water use, since these cannas like moisture but require average water only, and even tolerate some drought. The upright plants typically reach nearly 4 feet high, with thick and sturdy flower stalks giving way to lily-shaped blooms.

This plant that hails from tropical areas of America and beyond performs well in hot summers. Toucan Yellow is hardy outdoors in warmer climates (zones 8 through 11) and loves heat. When planted in full or mostly sunny conditions, the rebloomer will stand out in any garden bed or container, typically blooming soon after planting until first frost. Plant several for a colorful mass planting or use this stunning beauty as a focal point in a garden bed or container.

Toucan Yellow Canna Lily Care

Plant your outdoor canna lilies after the soil temperature warms to at least 50 degrees. Choose a mostly sunny spot and leave space for their mature height and some spread in the ground next year. Water regularly for best blooming and feed them with a controlled-release fertilizer at planting time. That should be all the fertilizer the new canna needs until the next spring. Fertilize container-grown cannas at planting with a controlled-release fertilizer and add a water-soluble plant food to occasional waterings beginning midsummer. Remember that containers dry out faster and you might have to water your potted canna more often.

Canna flowers appear all summer and the blooms last a few days. There is no need to deadhead them. If you do not like the look of the faded blooms, you can pinch them off, however, which might help other open blooms last longer. In zones 8 through 11, grow Toucan Yellow Canna Lily as a perennial. In zones 7 and above, you can add a layer of mulch over the ground above the canna lilies after the leaves fade naturally to protect the rhizomes through winter. In colder zones, you can dig up the rhizomes in the ground and store them, separated and wiped free of most soil, in newspaper or paper bag material in a cool, dry spot inside. Potted cannas can move inside, still planted in the pot. If left in a cool spot until spring, the plants should go dormant.

Toucan Yellow Canna Lily Spacing

Although the rhizomes under the ground seem small, these plants need room to spread. Try to give them at least 18 to 24 inches between each other and away from barriers such as border walls. For container-grown canna lilies, choose a pot at least 18 inches in diameter to hold one rhizome per pot.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
