Moderately cold resistant, it has withstood several degrees of frost in S. England, but can be badly damaged in cold winters. Plants are said to tolerate temperatures down to about -10°c. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus. Plants only flower at intervals of many years. When they do come into flower most of the plants energies are directed into producing seed and consequently the plant is severely weakened. They sometimes die after flowering, but if left alone they will usually recover though they will look very poorly for a few years. If fed with artificial NPK fertilizers at this time the plants are more likely to die.Cultivated for its canes in China, this species was the most commonly used species on the world market in the early part of the 20th century until war halted supplies.
