Plants are hardy to at least -7°c in Australian gardens, though this cannot be translated directly to British gardens due to our cooler summers and longer colder and wetter winters. They only succeed outdoors in the milder areas of Britain. Young plants at Crarae in western Scotland in 1992 appear to be very hardy and robust. Plants in the wild vary in size from shrubs to very big trees according to rainfall and altitude. Trees have poor wind resistance in Britain, probably because they grow so fast. Another report says that this species is slow growing in cultivation. Trees up to 4 metres tall can be successfully established, though the optimum size for transplanting is about 30 - 80cm. The roots are very sensitive to desiccation and extreme care should be taken when transplanting them. Another report says that the tree transplants badly.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
