    Notes

    Cultivation

    We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain. However, judging by its native range, it is likely to succeed outdoors at least in the milder areas of the country. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus. Succeeds in most well-drained fertile soils in a sunny position[2][3].

    Propagation

    Seed - sow spring to early summer in a greenhouse and only just cover the seed[3]. It usually germinates in 10 - 18 days at 15°c but if it does not germinate within 4 weeks then try chilling the seed for 3 weeks in the salad compartment of a fridge[4]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer.

    Range

    E. Asia - Himalayas from India to Bhutan and Nepal.

    Habitat

    Open rocky places at elevations of 2600 - 4000 metres in Nepal[1].

    Known hazards

    None known

    Edible uses

    None known

    Material uses

    The leaves contain about 0.8% essential oils[1]. The plant is used as an incense[1]. The dried and powdered leaves have lice and insect repelling qualities[1].

    Medicinal uses

    None known
