Cultivation tips: Requires a sunny position, succeeding in most reasonably good soils so long as they are well-drained[1, 11, 182, 200]. The plant prefers a rich loamy soil[11]. Plants are very tolerant of alkaline soils[200]. Of doubtful hardiness in most of Britain, it is likely to be damaged or killed by temperatures lower than 0°c[260]. However, one report says that it succeeds outdoors in southern Cornwall[1] whilst other reports say that it might be hardy on
a south or south-west facing wall in the mildest areas of this country[11, 166, 182, 188]. So long as . The plant is well mulched it resprouts freely from the base if cut back by severe weather[200]. A very ornamental plant[1], the cut flowers last well in water[200]. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus[200]. Any pruning is best done after flowering[200]. An excellent plant for bees and butterflies. Dioecious. Male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.

. The plant should best be propagated by Seed - cold stratify for 4 weeks at 4°c[138] and surface sow the seed in February/March in a greenhouse[78, 113] (the pre-chilling might not be required for this species). Germination usually takes place within 3 - 4 weeks at 21°c[138]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Seedlings are inclined to damp off and so should be watered with care and kept well-ventilated[78]. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[11, 113]. Use short side-shoots[78]. Very high percentage[113]. Cuttings of mature wood of the current season's growth, 15 - 20 centimeters long, October/November in a frame[200].

The dried and powdered root is used in the preparation of a fermented liquor[183].
