Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – we have no information for this species but suggest sowing the seed in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe if this is possible, otherwise sow it in the spring. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Division might be possible in the spring.
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 at least in the milder areas of the country. It is likely to require a well-drained soil and a sunny position.
