Cultivation details

Prefers a moisture-retentive soil[184]. Tolerates some lime in the soil but prefers a humus-rich acid soil[182, 200]. Requires a sunny position and some shelter from cold winds[11, 184]. Tolerates full sun if the soil is cool and moist[11]. Prefers its roots to be in the shade[200]. Plants are hardy to about -15°c[184]. Often cultivated as an ornamental plant, there are some named varieties[182]. The flowers are scented[245].

Propagation

Seed - sow February in a greenhouse. The seed should be stored cool and dry over the winter. Germination is usually good[78]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. A hybrid species, it will not breed true from seed. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 6 - 8cm with a heel, June/July in individual pots in a frame. Roots in 5 - 6 weeks. A variable percentage succeed[78]. Layering in late summer. Takes 16 months. High percentage[78].

I planted my tree about three or four years ago. Has never flowered and is about 6 feet tall This winter it got into the high teens and did fine. I have it in a drought tolerant semi shaded area, heavy clay, which maybe why it hasn't flowered. Not many evergreen broadleaves in N.W. so this seems to fit the bill for a small evergreen tree for privacy.
