I've seen it naturalised ...

... (or at least self-seeding) in at least one place.

north

Here in Orkney it grows in several 'wild' places.
NBN has NO records north of Glasgow! Pah!
OK, one on Rhum is 1972!

The BSBI has ...

... records for Aberdeen, Huntly and Macduff. For Rhum their latest records are pre-1970.

Only 97 records from 56 tetrads in total.

In addition to the site I've recorded, I know of it growing as a relict at the edge of an abandoned factory site (with several other ornamental shrubs), and I saw what might have been a young plant in a scrap of urban waste.

.....amazing really and I wonder why it's so under-recorded - even in England.
Anyway, see mine now, the most northerly UK
