Howdy, Dusty Miller!


Sometimes when I hear the name, “Dusty Miller,” I think of a sweet, old-fashioned cowboy with a heart of gold.  You know the type — someone who gets along with everybody.  And, in my humble opinion, this is also a pretty good description of the silvery gray plant with lacy foliage that goes by the same name.  White, wooly hairs cover the leaves and give them the appearance of having been dusted with flour.  Dusty miller is the perfect companion for just about every vibrant and flashy flower in a garden.  Only deer seem to take an exception to it and gardners often agree that this is probably for the best.

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
