They will bloom in shade, but not as well.
Your cannas look great! My first guess is also that they are not getting enough sun. Without enough, you'll get lots and lots of tall foliage, but no flowers. Also, cannas are not big nitrogen users, so use a tomato or rose fertilizer that is higher in phosphorus. Cannas don't do well when they stand in water so my advice would be to drill some drainage holes in the bottom of your pot (it's gorgeous, by the way).
Call any reputable flower nursery and they may be able to help you. Did you transplant it at the recommended time etc. Google transplanting canna lilies and see what you get.
Thank you both for you info.. If it is Shock maybe it will bloom next year. I'm thinking too that it's not getting as much sun as it did in the back yard (south side)
Hi Ellen, your right on the mark.
Where it is sitting it's not getting enough sun, just a little a.m. sun. My husband will drill drainage holes in it this weekend. They are the short yellow blooms- they brighten my day. Thanks for the great advice.
