Propagated by spring division of rhizomes, or by seeds planted in the ground in June or seedlings in April. Seeds are pre-stratified, for which they are soaked, kept at 5-7 ° C for a week, then transferred to heat. Shoots appear at room temperature in 10-14 days. For better branching, seedlings are pinched over 3-4 leaves. Planted in early June.
Pruned in the spring, removing excess and damaged shoots.
