  1. Oklahoma Agriculture Magazine 2017

    Carnegie Farm's Canna Lilies   A big thank you to farmflavor.com for included us in their 2017 edition of Oklahoma Agriculture magazine.  It is always fun to share our story and the unexpected way our farm got its start.  Horn Canna Farm's roots (pun intended) started very simply.  An aunt from Arkansas shipped a package to Dustin's great grandparents. ...

  2. Boston Common Inspiration

    Boston Common Inspiration
    Cannas make powerful statements in many areas of Boston Common.   Pretoria and Musifolia at Old South Church in Boston   We spent a few days in Boston this summer and saw cannas everywhere!  Boston Common has many displays of cannas mixed with grasses, lantana, zinnias, snapdragons, elephant ears, salvia, perwinkles and more.  Cannas are planted both as eye...

  3. January 2014 Update

    It's cold in Oklahoma but our barns are warm and toasty as we prepare our canna rhizomes for spring shipment.  This year's shipping season kicks off Monday, February 17, 2014. We recommend planting cannas when soil temperatures are 60 degrees or above. For Oklahoma this means spring planting begins April 1st. When you place an order on our site you...

  4. Harvest 2012

    Harvest 2012 is underway!  It is cool and breezy here on the farm, a typical fall day in Oklahoma.   Last summer's drought wreaked havoc on the crop.  While this summer's heat was still challenging, we are so glad to see better results as we harvest the cannas.  Rain kept us out of the field for a day or two but we don't complain...

  6. Double Duty at the Farm: Planting and Shipping

    You may notice a shortened availability list on our availability page.  We are sold out of several varieties for this season.  But please do not think our remaining availability is our less popular varieties.  In fact, it's almost the opposite.  Australia, Cleopatra, Pretoria and Red Futurity are some of our best selling varieties, just to name a few!  Southern states...

  7. Knee Deep in Shipping Season

    Many of our customers in the south started receiving their cannas last month. We're currently shipping our cannas to the warmer states, but gradually moving our way north as the temperatures rise! Oklahoma was extremely mild this winter. Cannas left in the ground in our flowerbeds (right next to the brick foundation on the south side of the house) are...

  8. One Month Until Shipping Season 2012 Begins!

    Due to the unseasonably warm winter we are experiencing, it REALLY is almost time to start shipping cannas. (It was in the mid 70's here in Oklahoma today!) Our warm-weathered, southern friends should receive their cannas first as their soil temperatures are conducive to healthy growing cannas. Then we'll quickly begin shipping cannas further north as the spring warms. REMEMBER...

  9. Battling the Drought

    We don't know about your weather, but the intense drought engulfing the southern plains this summer has been almost unbearable. The East Coast is facing a hurricane, while other parts of the country have had too much rain. We are most thankful to have irrigation!  The end of our growing season is near as we begin harvesting in October. Look...
