When cultivated under good conditions, it will grow in excess of 2 feet (60 cm) per year and can be reasonably expected to reach heights of 12 feet (4 m) or more after 10 years in the landscape. It is known to be very cold hardy, but may struggle in hot climates above zone 6, especially those with warm, humid nights.
