Propagation

Seed - we have no details for this species but suggest sowing the seed in a greenhouse as soon as it is ripe if possible otherwise in early 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. Division in spring or after flowering in the summer.
