Should I cut this down or leave it. I bought this canna in a plant sale after it had flowered earlier in the year. It put out a lot of new leaves and I have it in the conservatory now.




I'd say leave it. That's what large glasshouse owners do, after all! Enjoy it!

Thanks Spritz and Noseypotter, I did think it would be a shame to cut it down but just didn't know what I was supposed to do with it. It seems to like it in the conservatory.

never mend something that isnt broken x .

I wouldn't cut down the stems unless they are done blooming, or are frost damaged. Neither seems to apply in this case.
