    I like the silvery white leaves of Dusty Miller. However, I hardly ever see Dusty Miller used in gardens or containers. Has Dusty Miller gone out of style?

    Several years ago here someone had planted Dusty Miller on their tree lawn in a small flower bed.

    I use to put it in my containers all of the time, I really like it in them... I use to have so many out , at least 30 containers but with living by the lake, we want to fish a lot this summer. We just fish on shore, we don't plan on buying a boat or anything. Just don't want to spend the money on a dock at this stage of our lives. I will hang onto my containers for at least a year and then decide. We have a great thrift store in town that would appreciate them.
