Dusty Miller

Planted this Dusty Miller awhile back. I was surprised when it bloomed yellow blooms. I will post photos when it blooms again. I was attracted to the plant mainly for its name (being so close to Dustin’s name) and to the pretty silver gray foliage.

Most gardeners prefer to cut off the flowers to encourage leaf growth. But I leave the blooms as they are so pretty in the garden. Dusty Miller is a nice addition to a colorful container garden, and makes a nice edging for your borders.

  1. Though I answered ‘yes’ in your poll, I’ve never actually heard of ‘dusty miller’, but if it’s what I think it is (Centaurea cineraria) then I do know it. It’s used as bedding here, as it’s not hardy for our climate. Beautiful foliage πŸ™‚
