A very hardy plant when dormant, tolerating temperatures down to about -30°c. The fresh spring growth, however, is subject to damage by late frosts. It grows best in south-eastern England and poorly in Scotland where it suffers from the lack of summer warmth. Growth can be very rapid when young with annual increases of 1 metre common. However, unless the tree is in a sheltered position and a moist soil the growth rate reduces dramatically once it is 6 metres tall. New growth takes place from May to August.This plant was only known from fossil records until it was discovered growing wild in China in 1941.
