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.
