Gardeners' Notes:

This unusually colored canna did very well in a pot for over a year, and is now in the ground in what has proved to be a too shady spot, but is still blooming beautifully. This fall it will be moved to a sunnier, low lying flower bed being built just for cannas and other moisture loving plants. The coral pink color is really attractive against the medium green foilage.

With very good soil and plenty of water and space and of course sun, this canna lilly will perform great in the garden. I had one that had a pink head about 8 in. wide and the hight was over 5 ft. I though it was a dwarf. One of the best cannas I have, now grown in a pot it's smaller but still has great blooms.
