I live in zone 5 and have been told I can overwinter cannas. I am somewhat confused on how to do it? I would love it someone would share any knowledge they have on this. Also I have corkscrew grasses that I was told I would overwinter and would like to do that too, just need to know how. Thanks in advance for you answers.

As for the cannas- They are tropical, and would be best brought in for the winter. You can dig the bulb up, and store in a temperate dark area until spring. Here is a link that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/canna/storing-canna-bulbs.htm
As for the corkscrew grass. They are hardy perennials in most climates. Here is a link on their care as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/corkscrew-rush/growing-corkscrew-rush.htm
