Zenobia speciosa, one of the most beautiful shrubs, although it is not often grown. Plant in September, October, March or April in a lime-free soil, preferably in a sedge-peaty or sandy loam in a slightly sheltered position.

In these conditions it will grow to not less than 4 ft. and produce its abundant clusters of bell-shaped flowers, similar to those of lily-of-the-valley, in June and July. The leaves and branches are covered with a powdery, bluish-grey bloom.
