A very hardy plant, tolerating temperatures down to at least -20°c, but it prefers a continental climate and can be excited into premature growth in the mild maritime climate of Britain when the young growth is then very susceptible to frost damage. There is usually no lasting harm from this damage. Rarely more than a bush in much of Britain according to one report whilst another says that there are trees 18 metres tall in W. Britain. A fast growing tree, it tends to grow with a number of stems. Plants produce richer autumn colours when grown on acid soils, the fallen leaves smell like burnt toffee.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
