What is Dusty Miller?

If I were to describe it to my clients, I would say it's a velvety, suede like foliage that is silver-white in hue.  It's base is green and the leaves can be spikey and petite in size or clover.  It's a great and fine textured foliage that contrasts will against other green foliage, vines.  In floral design, it's lovely for wintry weddings to add that velvet texture.  For summer it works lovely with hues of peach, corals, creams, butters, pinks, blushes.  Easy to grown it can withstand heat but when used in boutonniere work, it can droop.

Here are a few great floral designs using dusty miller.
