Dawn I have a Fatsia started out smaller than this it now towers over a 6ft fence yes some of the leaves go brown and drop but not all and new growth soon comes.

Amy this one can with stand up to 10 degrees below in a sheltered position like a building 7 to 8 zone it must go in the ground though . Perhaps some hay straw or mounded leaf fall around it in harsh winters might help.

As you know, Amy, it's been a very wet cold & mucky winter but my Fatsia is looking good. Your coast in N.Norfolk is quite different from say Dottie's down in the south so time will tell but it is surprising how the plants adapt.
