A good soil stabilizer for steep banks, succeeding in shady positions[200]. The sprawling branches make this a good plant for ground cover, the plants should be spaced about 1.8 metres apart each way[208].
Cultivation details
Landscape Uses:Arbor, Cascades, Erosion control, Foundation, Ground cover, Massing, Screen, Standard. Succeeds in a good well-drained loam[1]. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Prefers a good soil and a sunny position but succeeds in shade[11, 28, 49], including on a north facing wall[200]. Tolerates very poor soils, whether acid or alkaline[202]. Tolerates urban pollution[200]. A very ornamental plant[1], it is hardy to about -15°c[184]. Some winter die-back can be experienced and flowers can be damaged in severe winters but new flowers are usually produced when the weather warms up[202]. A winter-flowering plant, flowering mainly on wood that was produced the previous summer[219]. Pruning can be carried out in early to mid spring once flowering has finished[202, 219]. Removing one third of the oldest growth down to ground level rejuvenates the plant and encourages greater flowering[202]. Unpruned plants tend to become woody and matted with dead stems[219]. The flowers have a delicate mossy perfume[245]. This species does not set seed in British gardens. This might be because all the plants in cultivation stem from one original importation[182]. An ideal plant for growing on shady walls and banks[28, 49]. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus[200]. Special Features: Not North American native, Attractive flowers or blooms.
Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame. 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. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame. Very easy. Cuttings of mature wood in November. Layering.
