I am always on the lookout for new plants and several years ago, looking through a catalog for Old House Gardens, I came across Canna ehemanii. This canna dates back to 1863 and the catalog description said it was “topped by arching sprays of dangling, bell-shaped, deep rose flowers”. The description is correct and this canna has been in a large pot in my deck for the past several summers. It has been in bloom for about two weeks and will continue blooming through the summer. It will reach about 6 feet in height and makes a grand showing of color. I have never seen it for sale at a retail garden center and mail order may be the only option. It is worth the search.
