Plants are not hardy in the colder areas of Britain, they tolerate temperatures down to about -10°c when fully dormant, though the young growth in spring can be damaged by late frosts. They do not succeed in the open at Kew, though they grow well against a wall. The flowers have a vanilla or sweet pea scent. Any pruning should consist of cutting out dead wood in the spring.This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria, these bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby.
