Cannas – Damaged by the Cold

Q: I had a lot of cannas in my front yard. This year they have not sprouted at all. Could the cold have killed them?

A: Yes, cold damage has been a major problem on marginally-hardy plants we typically leave in the ground each winter. I’ve had reports that banana, dahlia, ginger and elephant ear, in addition to canna, have not sprouted this spring.
