The reverse of the open, nodding, bell-shaped flowers is a deep purply-pink merging to a pale pinkish-cream at the margins. The inside is white, merging to mauve-pink margins and tips. The crimped margins of the four deeply textured tepals taper to pointed, strongly recurved tips. Their shape is reminiscent of the roofline of a Chinese pagoda from which it derives its name. The cut flowers keep well in water.
Pagoda is suitable for growing in containers of planting in the garden.
