Propagation

Seed - we have no information on this species but suggest surface sowing the seed in early spring in a greenhouse. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow them on in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant them out in late spring or early summer.
Division might be possible in the spring.
