Mr Donnie Hallman of Deersprings Nursery, South Carolina, USA introduced three exceptional new cultivars for 2005, amongst which was Canna 'Dorothy Taylor'. Mr Hallman described the cultivar as, "Flowers are huge and a rich pink. Foliage is rich green. This plant is named after a family member who loves plants as much as me", said Mr Hallman.
"This is one of the most stunning pink cannas I have ever seen! In the fall, the huge, well formed flowers turn almost Rose in color. A beautiful plant in every way. Fertile both ways. Grows 4' Tall".
