Dusty Miller

Senecio, Cineraria maritima


Dusty Miller QuicksilverTM is a new addition to the Hem Genetics Low Grow assortment. It has a basal branching, natural dwarf plant habit and stays more dwarf than Silverado or older Silverdust. From the early stage, Quicksilver develops finely indented silvery gray colored leaves. The low grow and uniform plant habit make Quicksilver perfect for use in packs, small pots and mixed containers. Due to its excellent garden performance it’s also very suitable for borders and the landscape.


Silverado develops silvery gray foliage on uniform plants. At an early stage Silverado is more green colored, which later turn into silvery gray. The leaves are slightly more coarse in shape than Quicksilver. The size and uniform plant habit make Silverado suitable for use in beds and borders.
