Top Plants For Sonoma County
Classic dusty miller foliage; renew by shearing annually.
Of the hundreds of species, those with dusty, pale blue, nearly white foliage are some of the most loved and most drought-tolerant in California gardens. Plant as edgings, among darker foliaged companions, or as a focal point in an evening garden. Pinch growing tips or trim top growth to maintain compactness. Daisylike flowers of S. cineraria appear continuously but are often removed in favor of foliage. S. viravira has white flowers and ferny, nearly white foliage.
