Welcome to Karchesky Canna Blog

We grow our cannas cold climate Pennsylvania USA zone 6/5 at a higher elevation and where winters are cold but summers can be quite warm. Cannas grow very well here from May through October until frost takes them around Halloween.
Our naturally rich Appalachian soil well amended with organic compost and our area's warm sultry summers lend to excellent yields each season.

Cannas are tropical plants that can be grown very well in many non-tropical parts of the world. Cannas are grown in summer in every state of the USA with their unsurpassed beauty enjoyed in both warm and cooler climates.

Our Canna Blog features our own gorgeous cannas
as well as many older and heirloom varieties we also grow.

Canna 'Richard Rehg' boasts large blue green lance shaped leaves and larger loose hot red blooms with gold. Larger structure and tall height to 8-9'. Lovely bright colours.
Named for "Canna Boy" of the 1970's who always appeared with a red canna, but never received due recognition for his part to promote them.
