Likes full sun.

Dusty Zenobia, Zenobia pulverulenta, is another native often found along stream banks. Plants tend to colonize. Gray-green foliage often persists into winter. White flowers in late spring. Gold fall color. 3 feet high and wide.

Using a variety of these shrubs would give you a handsome naturalized planting. Some of these may be difficult to find locally. Consider doing a web search for nurseries that have them. Good luck!
