This plant was a favorite of Victorians, growing well in bright conservatories and relocated outside in containers during warmer months. Whiteflies, spider mites, scale insects and and mealy bugs may be a problem. May be grown outside year round in frost-free areas or against warm wall or protected space in marginal areas. Use in shrub border, container garden, or as espalier. This species is sometimes called A. striatum of gardens.
