I will assume you mean Canna plants.

This sounds, to me, like the soil may be too rich in nitrogen. This will cause plenty of leaf growth at the expense of flowering.

You can add phosphorus and potassium to help flowering, or purchase a soil that is high in phosphorus in potassium and low in nitrogen.
