A very ornamental plant, it is only hardy in the milder parts of Britain, tolerating temperatures down to about -10°c when fully dormant. The young growth in spring can be damaged by late frosts. Plants grow and fruit very well in Cornwall, indeed, in the past it has been cultivated commercially for its fruit there (it was one of Queen Victoria's favourite fruits), but is now normally only grown as an ornamental plant. This is a much underused plant that highly merits cultivation on a commercial scale for its fruit[K]. Flowers and fruits well even when the plants are young.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
