Q.Why Does My Canna Lilly Feel Like Rubber?

Zone Des moines, Ia | Anonymous added on January 27, 2022 | Answered

I have a potted Canna Lilly that is two years old. I bring it in for the winter. This year it had been doing better than ever. It would occasionally get dry on the ends of the leaves but was growing great. Now within the last few days the stems feel like rubber or old celery. I am not sure what happened or how to fix it. Please help!

Has your canna been exposed to freezing temperatures? If not, it may have been overwatered. Either way, I suggest cutting them down to soil level and holding off on watering till you are ready to take it back out after all danger of frost has passed.
