It is hardy to zone (UK) 5. It is in flower from Jul to August, and the seeds ripen from Nov to February. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required) and are pollinated by Bees.Suitable for: light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils.
