Cultivation details
We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though it is unlikely to succeed outside the very mildest areas of the country. Requires a sunny position and a well-drained soil.
Propagation
Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse and only just cover the seed. Germination should take place within a week, prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out after the last expected frosts.
