Not very easy to grow in Australia but very pretty. You will need well drained moisture retentive soil, so mix in lots of compost. The same sort of conditions that suit Rhododendrons and dogwoods should suit it, you need to let it get it's roots established and keep well watered for the first few years.

They grow in areas that is in cool, sandy loam, moist, perhaps with part shade.
