Propagation

Seed - we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in spring in a warm greenhouse. Prick the seedlings out into individual pots when they are large enough to handle. Overwinter the young plants in a greenhouse for at least the first winter and plant out in their permanent positions in late spring or early summer. Give some protection for its first winter outdoors. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 5 - 8cm with a heel, July/August in a frame[9].

Cultivation

Prefers a light rich soil[10]. Succeeds in a fertile well-drained circum-neutral loamy soil, with shelter from cold winds[4].

Plants are not very frost-tolerant, though they are probably hardy in the mildest areas of the country[11][12].

The foliage of this tree when an adult is markedly different from the juvenile foliage, though plants begin to flower whilst still in the juvenile form[4].
