Some reports say that this species is not hardy in Britain, whilst another says that it is hardy to zone 5 (tolerating quite heavy frosts. There is a plant at Kew Botanical Gardens that bears this name and appears to be fully hardy, growing near the base of a west-facing brick wall[K]. It is possible that the plant is actually a hybrid H. forrestii x H. middendorffii. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus. Individual flowers are very short-lived, usually withering within 24 hours of opening. The plants produce a succession of blooms over a period of a month or more. Plants take a year or two to become established after being moved. Plants seem to be immune to the predations of rabbits.The plants are very susceptible to slug and snail damage, the young growth in spring is especially at risk.
