Angel Pink Beauty - how tall, please?

jo_in_txMay 21, 2006

This is a salmon colored canna with a yellow throat. I'd like to know how tall it gets. I'm planting it behind Primrose yellow, and I want to make sure I'm not making a mistake. The tag from the nursery says it will get four feet tall, but a source online says only two feet tall.

I'm in zone nine.

Thanks so much.

The height of a particular canna variety can vary depending on conditions, but I wouldn't bet on an Angel Pink growing to four feet. I used to have one that grew to maybe two and a half feet at best.

Unless the one with that nursery tag is a division of a mutation that tends to grow taller, four feet is probably an error.

The first question requiring an answer is if you actually have C. ÂAngel Pink or C. ÂPink BeautyÂ. From your description, I will assume you have received ÂAngle PinkÂ. There is no canna cultivar named ÂAngel Pink BeautyÂ. ÂAngle Pink typically grows 2 ½ to 3 and slightly shorter than ÂPrimrose YellowÂ. You may wish to plant it to the front. Regards, Kent

I just bought a plant yesterday labled pink Beauty Canna (Canna x Generalis 'Pink Beauty'). The grower is Southern Treasures; and this plant is definitly a dark pink, much closer to being red than salmon. The tag says 30" tall.
