When discussing his architectural specimens, the American Canna hybridist Brian Williams confided that "These are not the regular cannas most people look for but I find them useful and thought I would offer them in the spring. I use these varieties as a back drop for my other cannas. Tall growing with flowers held high above the foliage, they all of these are 7ft tall and up." Amongst these cultivars he includes Canna 'Flamingo Flight'.
Mr Williams went on to describe this cultivar as, "A taller growing canna, up to about 8 feet tall. Great for in the background, this canna produces tons of bright pink, with white streaks, flowers above its bright green foliage."
