Propagation

Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a greenhouse[2]. As soon as they are large enough to handle, prick out the seedlings into individual pots.

Give them some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors.

Cuttings of softwood, spring in a frame[2]. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[2].

Cultivation

Requires a sunny position and a humus-rich soil[2]. Thrives in a mixture of peat and loam[3]. Prefers a circum-neutral or slightly acid, moisture-retentive soil[2].

This species has a wide distribution in the wild, extending southwards from South-eastern North America to Brazil. An evergreen small tree in the warmer parts of its range, only those forms from the most northerly part of its range can be grown outdoors in Britain. These northerly forms are deciduous, though may remain evergreen in mild winters[3][2]. They usually take the form of a small shrub, but can sometimes become a small tree. They succeed outdoors in the south of Britain, though can be damaged or killed in severe winters[3].

The flowers are produced at the base of the current years growth[3][2].
