Nice medium-large plant, multiplies quickly and abundant blooms throughout the year with multiple branching of the flowering stalk. It doesn't set seeds even with hand-pollination.

Grows to 5' tall. One of the prettiest cannas - lovely coral-pink flowers edged in gold with soft green foliage. This plant dates back to the early 1900's. Vey tropical looking. Plant 18" apart. Blooms July - Oct.
