Cineraria 'Silver Dust', also known as Dusty Miller, is a compact perennial that grows to 30cm. Its deeply lobed lacy leaves are silver-grey, providing a dramatic colour contrast to many flowering plants. Small yellow daisy-like flowers will appear in summer, but this plant's main feature is its striking foliage. Cineraria 'Silver Dust' is drought-tolerant and will grow in full sun or part shade in any soil type. Can be grown as an annual but will survive year-round in most climates.
