Cultivation tips: Succeeds in a good well-drained loam[11, 200] and a very sunny position or light shade. Tolerates moderately alkaline or moderately acid soils. Dormant plants are hardy to about -10°c, though they require a sunny sheltered wall or hot summers if they are to flower well[11, 166]. The fresh young growth in spring is often damaged by late frosts. Plants can take some years to settle down before they start to flower. They climb by means of aerial roots but need to be supported[11, 166]. Another report says that this species does not produce
aerial roots. Plants can be pruned like grapes (Vitis spp.) and any pruning is best done in the spring. The sub-species C. grandiflora thunbergii tolerates saline winds. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus.
