Zenobia pulverulenta

 Zenobia pulverulenta is also well known for its vibrant fall color. The
foliage doesn't turn color until very late in the season, starting out in
blended tones of orange and red, but eventually turning flaming vermilion.

In the photo above, my potted plant is well past it's prime and already
shedding some foliage.  But on this frigid 24 degree F morning (-5 c),
the foliage color seemed to literally glow, so I snapped the photo.
