    Notes

    Cultivation

    Requires a sunny position or light dappled shade[7][5]. Prefers a highly fertile well-drained loamy soil[7][5]. Plants are only really hardy in the milder parts of Britain and even then they need the protection of a wall[8][5]. Requires cross-pollination for good fruit production[8]. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus[5].

    Propagation

    Seed - sow February in a greenhouse[9]. Only just cover the seed[10]. Germination usually takes place within 1 - 3 months at 18°c[10]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings of half-ripe wood 10cm long, July/August in a frame. High percentage[9]. Cuttings of mature wood of the current season's growth with a heel[9] taken in early spring[5].

    Range

    E. Asia - Central and S. Japan, Korea.

    Habitat

    Rich woods and thickets. In forests from the lowlands to elevations of 500 metres[6].

    Known hazards
