Canna Replanting

In Odessa, Texas, a friend dug up her canna plants and gave me some. They still have long leaves and stems. What can I do with them at this point? The temps are still in the 70-90 range.

You can either plant them now or store the bulbs over the winter and plant in the spring.

Here's how to store the bulbs:

If you plant them now, keep the roots moist until they go into the ground. It's beneficial to cut back the foliage to about 4 inches tall to reduce stress on the plant.
