Cordatum is best suited to drier climates with low summer humidity, however, it is hardier than many other plants from the south-west in humid areas. The species appreciates some protection from full sun as the flowers may suffer sunburn and performs best in well drained soils with assured moisture. It will recover from damage from light frost but is not suited to areas where moderate to heavy frost are experienced.
