Best in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil with some shelter from cold winds. Early morning sun during late frosts can damage the flowering buds.

By grafting or layering - quite difficult and slow.
Established multistemmed plants may also be divided, though a disruptive and somewhat risky operation.
