Cultivation & Habitat

Seed –
Requires a well-drained soil, preferably on the dry side[257]. Grows well in a woodland garden[257]. This species is not very hardy outdoors in Britain, tolerating temperatures down to between -5 and -10¡c[257]. A semi-parasitic plant, thus making it very difficult to establish in cultivation[200]. We are not sure which species it parasitizes[257].
