Reverts readily to the solid green species. Can get 30-50' tall.

According to Dirr, this is hardy in Z5-7 in eastern N. America.

Pretty in the shade with the white showing on the fronds. Had done well for 3 years, then was attacked by something, which stripped the fronds over the winter. Shrubs have not died, put on new foliage the next year. Doesn't look like they've really recovered, so the jury on survival is still out a summer and winter later.

I do have deer, but this doesn't look like deer damage: stripped, not cut off.

Editor's Note

The species is sometimes incorrectly spelled dolobrata. We have added that as a synonym to avoid confusion and duplicate entries.

According to Germplasm Resources Information Network, International Plant Names Index, and the Royal Horticultural Society, the correct spelling is dolabrata.
