Plants are hardy to about -10°c, they succeed in the open in the milder parts of the country but are best grown by a sunny wall in colder areas. This is one of the hardiest and most satisfactory of the evergreen members of the genus in Britain. It is a fast-growing species that can flower in 2 years from seed. The cultivar 'Puget Blue' is very vigorous and flowers freely, though it is likely to be of hybrid origin. This species is closely related to C. dentatus. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus. Plants dislike root disturbance, they should be planted out into their permanent positions whilst still small. Dislikes heavy pruning, it is best not to cut out any wood thicker than a pencil.Some members of this genus have a symbiotic relationship with certain soil micro-organisms, these form nodules on the roots of the plants and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby.
