Teaser: Beautiful silvery blue foliage makes a pretty counterpoint in fresh or dried flower arrangements.
Description:

Perfect as a container plant or grown as a point of interest in the garden. Beautiful silvery blue foliage makes a pretty counterpoint in fresh or dried flower arrangements. Leaves have a lovely mint or menthol-like fragrance - even after cutting and drying. In one season plants will usually grow between 60-90 cm (24-36") in height.  This very tender perennial (Zones 9-11) is grown as an annual in all of Canada.  Silver Drop can be brought indoors in early fall and in some cases it can grown on as a houseplant through the fall and winter. It can then be put back outside with the return of warm weather in the following year. If successful, with time Silver Drop can grow into quite a large plant.
