Senecio cineraria, also known as dusty miller or silver ragwort, is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family (Asteraceae). It is native to the Mediterranean region but is cultivated worldwide as an ornamental plant for its attractive silvery-grey foliage.

Here are some key characteristics of Senecio cineraria:

  1. Appearance: Senecio cineraria is valued for its finely divided, woolly, silver-grey leaves, which give it a distinctive appearance. The leaves are deeply lobed and have a velvety texture due to fine hairs on the surface.
  2. Flowers: While dusty miller is primarily grown for its foliage, it also produces small, yellow, daisy-like flowers on tall stalks. However, these flowers are often removed to encourage the plant to focus its energy on leaf growth.
  3. Growth Habit: Dusty miller is typically grown as an annual or short-lived perennial. It forms compact mounds of foliage and can reach a height of around 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 cm) with a similar spread.
  4. Cultural Requirements: Senecio cineraria prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established but benefits from regular watering, especially during hot, dry periods. It is also important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.
  5. Uses: Dusty miller is commonly used as a bedding plant, border edging, or container plant in gardens and landscapes. Its silver foliage provides contrast and adds a unique texture to garden designs. It is also sometimes used in floral arrangements as a filler or accent foliage.
  6. Maintenance: Senecio cineraria is relatively low-maintenance and does not require frequent pruning. However, removing spent flowers and dead or damaged foliage can help maintain its appearance and promote healthy growth.
