Pink Beauty is one of my favorite Cannas. It blooms in the range of colors Flamingo Pink to Hot Pink. What I absolutely love about the bloom is very subtle streaks of white start appearing in the bloom after it matures a bit. This is my 3rd year of seeing bloom on this Canna. I did not see these streaks until last year. It is multiplying but slowly. Mine is about 30" tall. I grow it in part shade so that might be part of the reason it is not taller and also, I don't fertilize the Canna's much. It blooms for me in May. I have not seen Fall blooms on this one like I have seen on some of my Cannas. Update: I realized that it may not be the type of Canna that keeps it from blooming throughout the Summer as many of my other Canna's do but instead that it is shaded by Trees in mid-Summer.
