absolutely beautiful. How long did it take for it to grow this tall?

Chowchilla, CA

Just one growing season. But then again, our growing season is 10 months long. i usually cut it back in December when it gets too large and leggy and some of the leaves have gotten burned by ocassional frost. They resprout in January and by April or May, they are once again this big and blooming their heads off. I have another clump of purple leaved, orange and hot pink flowering cannas that i might replace this one with.
