Dusty zenobia is a deciduous to semi-evergreen upright spreading shrub suitable for smaller garden settings. Growing 3-6’ tall, this open multi-stemmed shrub displays leathery foliage on gracefully arching branches, terminating in clusters of white, bell-shaped, fragrant flowers. Naturally found in bogs and wet areas, it will perform well in average to dry garden soils as well. Best fall color, in shades of orange, yellow, red and purple is displayed in full sun, though this plant is tolerant of light shade. Zenobia pulverulenta combines nicely in a bog setting with Sarracenia purpurea or Spiranthes odorata and in the garden with Rhododendron atlanticum ‘Marydel’, Dicentra eximia and Heuchera villosa.
