For best results grow Senecio cineraria ‘Silver Dust’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. To encourage new basal growth, flowering should be prevented by regularly removing lengthening stems.
Likewise, is Silver Dust an annual?
Silver Dust Dusty Miller is an herbaceous annual with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and usually looks its best without pruning, although it will tolerate pruning.
Considering this, does dusty miller like sun or shade?
How do you save a dying silver dust plant?
Cover the root balls lightly with soil, and then water thoroughly to compact. Water dusty miller only when the soil is completely dry and the plant appears to be wilting–usually about once per week. Drench the soil thoroughly and allow it to dry out again.
Tradescantia zebrina has long been a houseplant staple because it is easy to care for, looks great in hanging baskets inside or outside, and is gorgeous. The deep purple leaves have gorgeous bright silver markings on them. These plants are also ridiculously easy to propagate and grow like weeds.
Trim back leggy stems to create a more uniform plant with nice symmetry. For full rejuvenation of more ornate foliage, cut back all stems to 4 to 6 inches tall above ground. Clear away fallen and moist debris from the plant base to prevent disease and rot as plant regrows.
The Senecio cineraria ‘Silver Dust’ is evergreen.
Grow in well-drained soil in sun. Best with some afternoon shade in hot, dry areas. Drought tolerant once established. In frost-prone areas, treat as an annual or overwinter indoors.
