Dusty Miller

Dusty Miller is known by many names including; old woman, silver lace, silver dust, and dusty maiden. It is a soft greyish green color and the leaves have a velvet texture. The edges of the leaves are frilly adding to the soft feminine feel of this greenery.  As I mentioned it is a popular choice to include in wedding bouquets.
