Plants are not very cold-hardy, tolerating temperatures down to about -3°c. They succeed outdoors in the mildest areas of Britain, though even there they can be cut back to the ground in severe winters. A very ornamental tree, it can be pruned back hard after flowering in order to induce good flowering the following year.This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria, these bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby.
