Teaser: Outstanding contrast plant for gardens and planters.
Description:

Almost ice white, deeply serrated, velvety foliage helps to make this an outstanding contrast plant for gardens and planters. Growing to 25 cm (10") tall, this plant is quite tolerant of high temperatures and drought conditions. The scientific classification of Dusty Miller is tricky due to the diversity of cultivated varieties. We use 'Cineraria maritima' but it is also listed as 'Senecio cineraria.'
