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.
