Donald, do you water these at all in the summer?  I treat my arilbreds the same as my TBs, and they don’t go dormant.  They don’t rot either.  They get along just fine.

Here's a photo of what nearly all the arilbreds look like this year.  TABRIZ
in the back still has some green on the fans, but ZERZURA is in complete
dormancy (I hope).  Every year I wonder if they are dormant or dead.  So far
the rate of survival has been high on those that go dormant.  The earliest
ones that reached dormancy have essentially lost any sign of leaves.  Either
I've cleaned, they've rotted naturally or the wind has blown it away.  They
were much later going into the dormant stage this year.  There are quite a
few with TABRIZ-like green still showing that usually are completely dormant
(no green).
