Dusty Millers - Summer's Snowflake

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 February 2008 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Grown best in light and well-drained soil, dusty millers should be spaced about 8" apart. They're great to use for contrast and borders. For a while, I mistakenly used to call them Fuzzy Zoellers, a well-known professional golfer. Must have been their velvety surfaces.

Good job on highlighting the silver foliage with black and white... or gray scale...
