Zenobia pulverulenta

 Zenobia pulverulenta      copyright  2002 Mark McDonough

  Zenobia pulverulenta is a genus with just a single species, a distinctive member of the
Ericaeae. A small growing shrub from southeastern USA (Virginia, N. Carolina, S. Carolina),
it is nonetheless hardy in much more northerly locations, to at least USDA Zone 5. I was given
this plant from someone who has grown it for years outdoors in New Hampshire. Native
to the coastal plains, in bogs and among low thickets of evergreen shrubs, this wonderful
shrub is easy to grow in sun and good garden loam, even tolerant of heat and some
drought, although appreciating good irrigation to be at it's finest.  Said to grow 4'-6' tall,
it is so slow growing that a 6' tall shrub must be very old indeed.

Flowering in June from the old wood, the pendant white bells are rather plump
and wide open, compared to the pinched bells of Vaccinium and other allied
Ericaceous shrubs.  The flowers have a light, yet enticing citrus-like fruity scent.

Zenobia pulverulenta is famous for it's striking glaucous blue-green foliage, although
there are forms with regular green leaves. Forms with nearly blue-white foliage
present a memorable sight.  My plant is seed grown, and appears to be a mostly
green-leaf form with only a touch of glaucous tendencies.  Too bad, but it's a first
class small shrub nonetheless.  In the photo below, I'm holding up a lateral
flowering branch to reveal the inside of the rotund bells.

1. Zenobia pulverulenta (Bartram ex Willdenow) Pollard, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 22: 232. 1895.

Honey-cup

Andromeda pulverulenta W. Bartram ex Willdenow, Sp. Pl. 2: 610. 1799; A. cassinefolia Ventenat; Zenobia cassinefolia (Ventenat) Pollard; Z. pulverulenta var. nuda (Ventenat) Rehder

Plants 1-2 m, rhizomes extensive. Leaves: petiole 3-6 mm; blade 2-8(-10) × (0.5-)1.2-4.5 cm, base cuneate to rounded, apex acute, apiculate, rounded, or retuse. Pedicels: bracteoles absent. Flowers fragrant; sepal lobes triangular; corolla 6.5-10 mm; nectariferous disc 10-lobed; ovary 5-lobed. Capsules erect, 3.2-5 × 4.8-6.5 mm. Seeds ca. 1 × 0.5 mm, not winged. 2 n = ca. 66.

Flowering spring. Damp, sandy, or peaty pine savannas, shrub bogs, natural depression ponds, and swamp margins; 0-100 m; Ga., N.C., S.C., Va.

Some forms of Zenobia pulverulenta have been recognized. Plants with glaucous leaves and twigs occur primarily in the Sandhills region of North Carolina and South Carolina (inner coastal plain); nonglaucous plants occur primarily eastward. Zenobia is cultivated occasionally outside its native range as far north as Massachusetts. It is particularly appropriate for garden areas with wet soil. The flowers are anise-scented.
