One of the most productive and unique foliage plants around, this special Dusty Miller features tall, thick stems with large, smooth-edged silver leaves. The more you pick it, the more stems it produces. Ready to cut in just four months from sowing, this hardworking plant will reward you with buckets and buckets of fuzzy silvery foliage all season long. In warmer areas it will perennialize if mulched.
Details: Plant type: annual/perennial Height: 12-15” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 90-120 days Plant spacing: 9-12” Pinch: when 8-12” tall Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 10-12 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Seed is slow to start; bottom watering is recommended until plants emerge. Seedlings do not look silver when very young but color up as they mature.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Cut foliage is prone to wilting in the heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day and place directly into water to rest for a few hours before arranging. Stems will last 7-10 days in the vase.
