Description: Growing Zenobia gives us the opportunity to say we are growing everything fro A to Z. Furthermore, Dusty Zenobia is a very interesting small shrub that is deciduous in New England although it would be semi-evergreen farther South. It has an interesting bluish-green leaf and forms a graceful arching shrub that will finish somewhere between 3 and 6 feet in height. The leaves are attractive and have a relatively good fall color, but itís the narrow bell shaped white flowers which occur in the spring that make this such a nice plant. It will stand rather wet soil conditions which makes it even more valuable for the nursery trade.
