In ornamental flowers most commonly grown hybrid channel with a flowering height of 0,5 to 3 meters and colorful bright colors in many different color - orange, red, pink, beige, yellow - in amazing shades. There are varieties with contrasting patterns in other colors. The specificity of color when you invite so-called staminodii - stamens, grown in the leaflets.

For window decorations are used to lower varieties of the species Crozet Islands - with greyish leaves and flowers resembling those of gladioli or orhideepodobnite invites. Planted in containers and properly combined, they create a particularly charged atmosphere.

In the family of inviting only one genus of about 50 species. All are perennial herbaceous plants, but the tropical confines of their origin in the temperate regions. In our country they are used as lyatnotsaftyashti species. At the end of summer watering is gradually reduced and finally quite preustanovyava.Sled first frost rootstock is removed along with the soil around them and be harvested in dry and ventilated place where the temperature does not drop below 5 degrees. Themselves as cut stems to 10-15 cm from the rhizome.

For longer to flourish and thoroughly inviting, pretsaftelite colors should be regularly removed.


Jug-Red (Canna coccinea), which attracts attention with its orange-red flowers, gathered in clusters 30 centimeters and a beautiful green color of leaves.

Low-pitched (C. humilis), which reaches only 140 centimeters in height. Similar to the red channel, is also called Chinese pitcher.

Jug-edible (C. edulis), which indigenous peoples of North America called achira. Its advantage is that it uses for food. In the Andes "achira is grown specifically for the rich in starch, grudkovidno zadebeleni rhizomes, which are boiled and eaten. The traditional festival "Corpus Christi in Cuzco roasted edible roots of jug to be sold as a local delicacy. In Peru they bake and cook a thick paste with a sweet taste.

Garden-pot (C.indica hybrida), which cultivars are separated into two groups:

Invite love the sun, the lack of sufficient light leads to the reduction and termination of flowering.

Regular and copious irrigation affects well. But do not hold excess moisture.

Planted in the soil substrate and watered sparingly. After the new pedicle appear on the soil surface, should provide strong lighting. At the end of April (as the danger of frost passes) young plants are planted in the garden.
Another way of propagation by seed is inviting. This is possible because most of the productive species and hybrids in terms of our climate. The fruit is a spherical box with a big shiny light brown to black seeds. To grow, however, they need scarification (scratching the seed coat), which is most easily done with rub them with wire brush.
