Somewhat intolerant of frost, this species is only likely to succeed outdoors in the milder areas of Britain. Another report says that it is fully hardy in Britain. Closely related to C. atropurpurea and often confused with that species. It is a very variable plant, hybridizing freely with other members of this genus. 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.There is some confusion over the correct name of this species, it could be a part of C. petriei.
