Canna Blooms Are Edible and Delicious

I usually pull a whole, newly-opened bloom out of its calyx to use as a lovely edible plate garnish, but when I have an abundance I'll tear the blooms into a salad mix for color and a mild, sweet, lettuce-like flavor and texture.


  1. To think I almost pulled up and threw away about 15 of these that have taken up residence in a flower bed. I started with just one last year and the blooms are a gorgeous blazing orange yellow. Now I will just find them a nice new home where they can spread as much as they like. Thanks John, as usual.

  2. It sounds beautiful!! Let's swap rhizomes.
