Rarely tolerates temperatures lower than -3°C. Tolerates temperatures down to at least -7°c in Australian gardens, and plants are said to tolerate frost in South Africa, although this cannot be translated directly to British gardens due to our cooler summers and longer, colder and wetter winters. It might succeed outdoors in the mildest areas of the country. Spreading by means of root suckers, this species has become a pest in some parts of Florida. Closely related to C. cunninghamiana, though somewhat less hardy, it often hybridises in the wild with that species. In fine-textured clays, even in waterlogged soils, C. glauca can develop a deep root system, while C. cunninghamiana and C. equisetifolia develop shallow roots and grow poorly.This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil micro-organisms, these form nodules on the roots of the plants and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby. Although Nitrogen nodulation is most successful at pH 6 to 8, some natural stands are well nodulated in acid soils (pH ca 4).
