We are not sure if this plant is hardy outdoors in Britain. One report says that it is hardy in zone 7 (tolerating temperatures down to between -10 and -15°c) but then goes on to suggest that it is best grown in pots or tubs outdoors and moved into a cold greenhouse in the winter. There are some named varieties, selected for their ornamental value. The plant has creeping rhizomes.There has been some confusion between this species and A. crenata, the name Ardisia crispa was misapplied by de Candolle to Ardisia crenata.
