Does well on a sunny ledge in the rock garden. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus, especially C. petriei. There are several named forms, selected for their ornamental value.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.
