A very ornamental tree, in Britain it is only hardy south and west of south Surrey. Two forms are being grown at Crarae in western Scotland, the first is doing well whilst the second is much weaker when young but then seems to improve. Trees have poor wind resistance in Britain, probably because they grow so fast. 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.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
