Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in a cold frame. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out into their permanent positions in the summer.
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 many parts of this country. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus. Succeeds in full sun in a well-drained fertile preferably alkaline soil[200]. This species might be no more than a part of the polymorphic species B. cretica[74].
Europe – Majorca.
