Canna 'Zulu Pink' - This medium sized Canna grows to only 3 feet tall but it makes a dramatice statement in the garden. The short broad leaves are dark reddish-black with a smokey-gray cast and provide a beautiful foil for the flared-open pink flowers. One of our favorite Canna lilies. We received this outstanding plant from Herb Kelly. It was given to him as 'Zulu Pink' but we have never found this name listed in any references. The Zulu series was a group of Canna raised by Marcelle Sheppard of Marcelle's Crinums of Vidor, Texas. Most likely this plant is the same as what is now listed as 'Zulu Princess' in Ian Cooke's new book "Cannas" although he lists this plant as a tall plant whereas 'Zulu Pink' has remained under 3 feet for us.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Canna 'Zulu Pink'.
