|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 them are 7ft tall and up." Amongst these cultivars he includes Canna 'Kentucky Copperhead'.
Mr Williams described it as being "A tall grower to about 8 ft with very large dark maroon leaves. The flowers are small but flowers in clusters. The flowers range from pink to peach and orange."
