(M) Another cultivar from Kent Kelly, this one with rich pink blossoms. It is early and continuous-flowering. The foliage is lance-shaped and green. It is not readily available.
Rich pink blossoms produced in continuous numbers atop 3 ft. elliptical lance foliage of deep green. Early and full season bloomer with little grooming required.
Love your garden in late summer when rosy beauty Canna ‘Pink Princess’ fashions herself a fabulous crown of big, exotic pink blooms. But you don’t have to wait all summer for a good show – through the earlier months while she’s building up for her big floral finale she’s a stately green goddess, towering up to 1.5m tall with big lush leaves which pad out the planting scheme and
provide a tranquil, emerald setting for your summer flowers.
Cannas typically look gorgeous in a tropical style border combined with other exotic-looking plants like dahlias, but they can fit in really well to a more traditional style too and look brilliant grouped together amongst clumps of flowering perennials in border. On the other hand, if your garden is contemporary or has smaller planting spaces, these stylish Canna ‘Pink Princess’ can fit right in (literally) – with their small footing they’re great at making a big impact in a small space.
