Dusty Miller Silverdust Seeds

Dusty Miller Silverdust Seeds

Senecio cineraria

Item #1301

Annual. Dusty Miller adds beautiful contrast and texture everywhere you grow it. It’s excellent for edging, is a must for a moon garden, and makes a pretty filler for bouquets. Although usually grown as an annual, it is actually a perennial in USDA zones 8 to 10 and may survive mild winters when mulched for protection. Drought tolerant once established. Growing your own Dusty Miller from seed is an easy, economical way to grow this ornamental staple.
