This species is closely related to A. delavayi. A slow growing tree, but it succeeds in all parts of Britain. It grows best in the Perthshire valleys of Scotland. Very cold tolerant, but it can be excited into premature growth in the mild winters of Britain and this young growth is susceptible to damage by late frosts. 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.This species is said to be found at the highest altitude of any tree in the world.
