Now, it is 10:30pm and it is once again, totally sagging down. We do have a pretty heavy frost going on....Is this normal in the winter months, obviously, it is my first Fatsia?

....mine have been doing the same thing, wilting at night and returning to normal when temps go above freezing in the day.

What an odd deal that is....I will have to pay more attention to the temperature when it comes to them, thanks for pointing that out.

My fatsia, aucuba, rhodies and stuff have been curled up for about 3 weeks now because we haven't gone above 20F even in the day time. It's how they protect themselves. My hardy yuccas do the same thing but yucca recurvafolia does not curl up so may be damaged or die to the ground when temps are too cold. Even my Alaska Weeping Cedars look dehydrated and small but will swell back up when the temp. goes above freezing.

Jeff, I'm in Walla Walla in SE Washington. We've always been zone 6 but the latest info says I'm zone 7. Most winters are down to 10F to 20F as lows but every 5 years or so we can drop to -15F and it stays for 2 weeks. So far I don't think we have gone below +15F this winter. It's been about 20F for the last 3 weeks and right now is 27F. Tomorrow is suppose to get 37F and start raining and days above freezing for a while.
