Plants are hardy to about -30°c. when dormant but young growth in spring can be cut back by late frosts. Fruits are formed on second year wood and also on fruit spurs on older wood, any pruning is best carried out in the winter. The flowers are fragrant. This is a climbing plant, supporting itself by twining around branches etc. The plant is very attractive to cats and can be damaged by them. This species has been confused in literature with A. kolomikta. It is closely related but can be distinguished by the leaves which are tapered at the base whilst those of A. kolomikta are heart-shaped. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.One report suggests that plants are self-fertile whilst another says that they are dioecious. It is likely that most plants are dioecious but that there are some self-fertile hermaphrodite forms. A cultivar named 418-77 is self-fertile.
