This annual is invaluable for its velvety, silvery foliage, which looks very attractive when contrasted with pinks, blues, purples and even whites. A compact habit makes it an ideal companion plant for other low-growing annuals.
Sow in average soil in full sun after danger of frost. Sow thinly and cover with 1/4" of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist.
How to Grow
Seedlings emerge in 10-21 days. Thin to stand about 6" apart when seedlings are 1-2" high. Full sun is required for dusty miller plants since they will grow lanky in the shade. These plants need little maintenance once they are established.
Dusty miller makes an excellent edging, border, rock garden, or container plant. Use the cut foliage for contrast in fresh flower arrangements.
