Propagation

Seed - we have no details for this species but suggest sowing the seed in a greenhouse in the spring. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out in early summer and consider giving them some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in sand in a frame[4].

Succeeds in any moderately fertile well-drained soil[4]. Requires full sun and a sheltered position[5][4].

A fairly hardy plant[6], but it does not succeed outdoors at Kew, the soft pithy shoots being cut back by winter cold[7]. It grows well in Gloucestershire[7][5].
