Lovely soft pastel pink shading to a creamy mottled pink which can vary at different times of the year. The foliage adds a wonderful foil to the blooms. A great Canna to have in the garden or in large pots or tubs.One of my Pink favourites.

A very lovely canna resulting from the Longwood Gardens canna breeding program. 'Constitution' has large overlapping pale pink petals with a notch to the end. Foliage is chocolately brown. Delicate and beautiful, this one is well recommended.
