This is the second of two pink introductions that we made from seedlings raised from an extra-vigorous form of C. integrifolia that we received from our friend Kazushige Ozawa. We have chosen the name 'Pagoda Pink' to suggest this connection with Japan as well as two other features of the plant. First, the flowers rise in pagoda-like tiers up the 2- to 2.5-foot stems. Second, the tips of the sepals of the downward facing bell flowers recurve suggesting a pagoda's roofline. Another special feature is the deep bronze flush in the leaves which complements the rosy flowers. Cut this back six inches or so after its first flush of blooms and it will send out new bronze foliage and many more flowers.
