Cannas! Tropicana Cannas?

Why do we see canna lilies all over central Texas --but not Tropicana Cannas? The leaves are a BIG deal on this gentle giant, not the flowers. When the light hits them just right you have pink, orange & red fireworks all generated from the narrow stripes of a 3 to 4 ft tall easy keeper. They just love plenty of water as in ditches & pond edges but the big bulbs will withstand dry spells. All cannas make fabulous photo backgrounds. Plus their wondrous characteristic as the most generous multiplier while not invasive. Yes, each year these big bulbs will double in size (at least) & finally you will want to find family & neighbors to share them with!

Count yourselves fortunate. Up north I had to keep them in huge tree size nursery pots & haul them into shelter every fall after watching the tops die off, then keep them moist enough without being too wet until they started showing new growth to carefully place them out again in the spring hoping a late frost would not wipe out new growth. I would lose a few old friends each year to mildew or freeze & they were heavy! It was always worth it though for the photos. . .

Designing Custom Flower Gardens

We are your local Madison County source
 for live flower arrangements, container flower and food gardens, color riot landscaping designs, custom-grown perennial and annual compliments for photo events, flowering photography backdrops, do-it-yourself year-round blooms, and garden texture enhancement.


We love helping you bring your soil alive overnight! Our colorful container gardens are famous for their productivity. A pair of specially selected container gardens of flowering blooms and salad greens make a wonderful and colorful gift. 

We create custom-planted container flower gardens to provide food for the pollinators and to attract hummingbirds. Central Texas is a great place for gardeners! We can help you support our butterflies, wild bees, and hummingbirds with a thoughtfully planned flower garden with honeybees and hummingbirds in mind.

You are invited to reserve your custom container flower gardens for growing flower arrangements for your home, business, weddings, and special occasions, by appointment. Contact me, Lorraine Smith.

Some of what's growing now for the 2022 season;

We'll show you how to feed and grow your flowers to attain their optimum height and production.

Lorraine Smith and her daughter, Eliza Grantham moved from the Seattle area to Madisonville, Texas in the summer of 2021. They now enjoy living near the grandchildren in Killeen, Texas, and gardening in a warmer climate. Lorraine is well known for her hanging flower baskets and everblooming container gardens.


Attracting hummingbirds is easy when you're growing the right flowers for a hummingbird garden.
