Canarina is a genus of only three species, two of which are from northern Africa. The one I have, Canarina canariensis, comes from the Canary Islands off the coast of North Africa. It is not bulbous, but grows from a rough, lumpy tuber, and it is a member of the Family Campanulaceae. My plants are in bloom now, and have been in bloom for about two months, since they emerge from dormancy in the early winter and rapidly send up shoots that become a rather sprawling mass of stems supporting their lovely flowers. The bell-shaped flowers are rather like those of an Abutilon. I have thought of growing one in a hanging basket where one could admire the flowers from below. Once I did put a pot on a pedestal, and this displayed the plant well. They are tender, and need protection from frost, so should only be grown outdoors in the mildest climate.
