Propagation

Seed - we have very little information on this species but would suggest sowing the seed in a greenhouse in the spring. 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. It will probably pay to protect the plants for their first winter or two in the open ground. There are about 75,000 seeds per pound, only half of which are viable. About 4,000 plants are usually raised from a pound of seed[2]. Grows readily from cuttings[2].

Cultivation

Requires a very warm sunny position in a very well-drained soil[4]. Plants are likely to be intolerant of wet conditions especially in the winter[K].

This species is not very hardy outdoors in Britain, tolerating temperatures down to about -3°c[4].

The showy flowers are fragrant[5].
