I think it's safe to say, this one just had a growth spurt. Basically it's even with the top of my fence. (Couldn't fit the bottom in). #dustymiller #growthspurt #growinglikecrazy #trumpetvineneedstrimming. 5/3/19

Me too Heather. This is my first time growing one and they are very easy low maintenance !! I like the contrast between the yellow flowers and the silver foliage. @heatherdirtyhands

@sherrisgarden. Yes they definitely give contrast and they can get pretty tall too. I have seen other varieties with wider leaves that. I want so bad 😍

Pretty common plant you should be able to find one pretty easily. I never knew til now they get tall. I always thought they were short shrubs. @heatherdirtyhands

Took this pic about a week ago. I've always loved this plant I think mainly for the contrast of colors. #dustymiller #yellowflower #silverleaves #grey #centaurea #centaurea-cineraria #cineraria #colorcontrast #colourcontrast. 11/28/18
