Very good foliage of dark green glossy leaves. Flowers comparatively late, in June or July.

Most well drained soils, but not very chalky ones. Prefers full sun. Reasonably frost hardy, best in a sheltered position in cool areas.

By semi-ripe cuttings taken from mid-summer to autumn - can be tricky, a little bottom heat may help.
