cut back dusty miller?

magothyrivergirlApril 8, 2008

My Dusty Miller survived our mild winter - do I cut it back soon, leave it alone, or transplant it to a better location since it is now too tall in the bed? The Dusty Miller that I literally dumped out of its pot over the deck is still alive! Now, my beloved rosemary finally died - but the Dusty Miller is alive and seemingly well!

So, what do you recommend?

You can do either. Depends on how ratty the old foliage is, I suppose. If you want to leave it in place then just cut it back.
