Common name: Dusty Miller, Beach Sage, Beach Wormwood, Old woman
A plant with a silvery foliage that complements other plants and flowers and can be used as a ground cover, or grown in pots. It can grow upto a foot tall. The silver leaves are what it is most beautiful. They supposedly do have small yellow flowers in the second year ( I have never seen them), but if allowed to grow,the plant does not look as beautiful and looks rather stringy,and therefore it is advised to remove them.

Family: Asteraceae (Sunflower family).
