Somewhat intolerant of frost, this species is only likely to succeed outdoors in the milder areas of Britain. Another report says that it is quite hardy in Britain. Closely related to C. pumila, and often confused with that species. It hybridizes freely with other members of this genus. This species is often confused with C. petriei, though it is quite distinct and does not hybridise with that species.Plants are normally dioecious, though in some species the plants produce a few flowers of the opposite sex before the main flowering and a few hermaphrodite flowers are sometimes produced. Male and female plants must usually be grown if seed is required.
