Senecio cineraria 'Silver Dust'

 

Silver ragwort 'Silver Dust'

'Silver Dust' is usually grown as an annual, for its strikingly silvery-white leaves, sometimes with loose clusters of yellow daisy flowers in summer. The Senecio genus includes annual or perennial herbs, shrubs, and climbers that are suitable for the garden or conservatory. Most species have fleshy, glabrous, pale gray green leaves, daisy-like flowers, often yellow. They are widely spread and some varieties are invasive, toxic and considered weeds!

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Grow in well-drained soil in full sun; will tolerate some shade. It is fine in any soil other than wet soil or badly draining soil. Drought tolerant and good for windswept areas. Add in some well rotted manure or compost when planting young plants and water in well.
