Dear Diana:

Canarina canariensis needs temperatures in the 45-50F range, perhaps
your greenhouse allows for such or near these temperatures. I know
C.abyssinica and C. eminii have tuberous roots, not unlike Dahlia, but
does C canariensis have such a rootstock or is it just fleshy and not a
bulb in senso lato? I presume you know the fruit is an edible berry, I
have never eaten one, have you?  Cheers, John E. Bryan
