Fremontia is a very attractive bush which would actually be nice to include
in home landscaping given the appropriate climate. The bush is not always
easy to find at most nurseries and so it might be necessary to propagate the
plant by seed or through softwood cuttings. The seeds are said to usually
require fire to germinate in nature, but at home they may be germinated by
soaking them in extremely hot water and then refrigerating them for two or
three months before planting. Even then, germination rates may not be all
that great. Softwood cuttings are most successful during the growing season,
generally late spring to early summer.
