Propagation

Seed - we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in a greenhouse in early spring. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow the plants on for at least their first winter in a greenhouse or cold frame, planting them out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Cuttings could be tried in August of half-ripe wood, preferably with a heel, in a frame.

Cultivation

Requires a sheltered sunny position in a well-drained soil[2][3] and protection from cold winds[3].

Plants are not very hardy in Britain and do not withstand exposure to prolonged winter frosts though they succeed outdoors in the milder areas of the country[2][3]. In colder areas they are best grown against a south or south-west facing wall[3].

The leaves are resinous and catch fire easily[4]. They have a pleasant aroma[3].
