This species is very cold-hardy when fully dormant, but the trees can be excited into premature growth in Britain by mild spells during the winter and they are then very subject to damage by late frosts and cold winds. The tree often comes into growth in January or February and is then very susceptible to frost damage. A 56 year old tree at Kew in 1956 had only reached 4 metres tall and was dying. It is impossible to grow this tree in lowland Britain, though it should succeed above a height of 300 metres in the eastern Scottish Highlands. Growth is normally slow in Britain with average height increases of less than 30cm per year. Trees are planted for timber in Asia and Northern Europe, especially in Sweden and Finland. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus. Open ground plants, 1 year x 1 year are the best for planting out, do not use container grown plants with spiralled roots. Plants transplant well, even when coming into growth in the spring.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
