Canna ‘Mademoiselle Rose Lombard’ is a medium sized Foliage Group cultivar; green foliage, very large, oval-acuminate shaped, spreading habit; oval main stems, coloured green; round flower stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, self-coloured pale pink, throat salmon, staminodes are medium size, edges regular, labellum is old-rose, stamen is canary-yellow speckled with pale pink, style is canary-yellow, petals green, fully self-cleaning, low bloomer, blooms open in the early morning; seed is sterile, pollen is fertile; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white and pink; tillering is average.

The breeder succeeded in using pollen from C. ‘Ehmanni’ on other existing hybrids, to obtain many different foliage plants with large flowers. The leaves are a magnificent Musa form, the flowers just as large as those of C. ‘Ehmanni’; but they do not produce as many flowers as the Crozy Group.
