wait until the freezing is well past, a simple test, take a oven temp gague
and stick it in the ground, if under 40F don't plant, over 40 plant. Canna
are HEAT loving plants. I live in zone 8 High Mojave desert and can leave
mine in the ground as any freeze we get is just an hour or two and not deep,
so my canna store up food during the winter and by spring time start growing
new roots and shoots. I've already got new shoot above ground.

Yes, but you may have a micro climate, they may be planted in front of a south
facing wall, you may be in a zone 7b where it can get down to the average low
temps, but only for hours at a time, as it does in Dallas...where cannas are
reliably hardy. Many things to consider.

I live in zone 5/6 and don't ever dig my cannas up in the winter. They
come back fine and I've even got two bags of extras that I had to dig up
because they were popping way up out of the ground. I planted three
bulbs in one spot last year and pulled up at least a dozen extras from
the same spot in October.
