This species comes from an area of very high rainfall and does not normally thrive in Britain. It is also very susceptible to damage by late frosts. It grows best in the cooler wetter parts of Britain, such as the Perthshire valleys of Scotland and the far west. Some trees are thriving in these areas. Trees should be planted into their permanent positions when they are quite small, between 30 and 90cm in height. Larger trees will check badly and hardly put on any growth for several years. This also badly affects root development and wind resistance. Plants are strongly outbreeding, self-fertilized seed usually grows poorly. They hybridize freely with other members of this genus.Closely related to A. recurvata and A. squamata.
