Cultivation

Prefers a rich organic soil with ample nitrogen and regular watering[3]. This species is little, if at all, cultivated and its exact requirements are not clearly understood[3]. It is not known if the plant will require periodic inundation by salty water to grow well[3].

We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though judging by its native range it should succeed outdoors in most parts of the country.

This species might be no more than a synonym for S. europaea[4], some botanists seeing it as being part of that aggregate species[3].. The plants native habitat will give some idea of its cultivation needs.
