Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse at 10°c. Two months stratification at 5°c assists germination[5]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Cuttings of almost ripe wood, 7 - 10cm long, July/August in a frame. Slow to root but a fair percentage[6][5]. Root cuttings 5cm long in December. Fair to good percentage[6]. Division of suckers in the dormant season[7].

Layering in winter[8]. Plants often self-layer[9].

Cultivation

Succeeds in a good well-drained loam[10][5] and a very sunny position[11] or light shade[5]. Tolerates moderately alkaline or moderately acid soils[7].

Dormant plants are hardy to about -10°c[5], though they require a sunny sheltered wall or hot summers if they are to flower well[10][11]. The fresh young growth in spring is often damaged by late frosts[1]. Plants can take some years to settle down before they start to flower[7]. They climb by means of aerial roots but need to be supported[10][11]. Another report says that this species does not produce aerial roots[12]. Plants can be pruned like grapes (Vitis spp.)[10] and any pruning is best done in the spring[8]. The sub-species C. grandiflora thunbergii tolerates saline winds[5].

Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus[5].
