We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though judging by its range it should succeed outdoors at least in the milder parts of the country. It is likely to require a sunny position in a dry to moist well-drained soil[

Propagation

Seed - we have no information on this species but suggest sowing the seed in late winter or early spring in a greenhouse. 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.
