Propagation

Seed - we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in spring in a greenhouse and only just covering the seed. 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 half-ripe wood, July/August in sand in a frame[6].

Cultivation

Requires a sunny position and prefers a well-drained sandy soil[1][2]. Does not require a rich soil[2]. Tolerates alkaline soils[6].

A very variable and ornamental species[1][2], it is not very hardy in Britain[2]. It can succeed outdoors in the milder areas of the country but it requires the protection of a sunny wall at Kew[2]. The leaves and stems are pleasantly aromatic when crushed[7].

This species is considered by some botanists to be no more than a form of C. nauseosus[8].
