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.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Canna 'Zulu Pink'.
