It is in flower from February to March, and the seeds ripen from October to November. The flowers are monoecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but both sexes can be found on the same plant) and are pollinated by Wind. The plant prefers light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils. The plant prefers acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils and can grow in very acid soil. It cannot grow in the shade. It requires dry moist or wet soil and can grow in water. Succeeds in most soils and situations, even in shallow standing water. It is slow growing in dry soils or shallow chalk but grows rapidly in moist or wet soils. Succeeds in most pH's down to 3.5. Requires a sunny position but likes as much side shelter as possible. A very hardy plant when dormant, tolerating temperatures down to about -30°c. The fresh spring growth, however, is subject to damage by late frosts. Growth can be very rapid when young with annual increases of 1 metre common. However, unless the tree is in a sheltered position and a moist soil the growth rate reduces dramatically once it is 6 metres tall. New growth takes place from May to August.
