Q.Dusty Millers

Anonymous added on April 4, 2014 | Answered

Planted dusty millers last year. They did very well. The snow bent them over. Can I trim them and, if so, how much? They are about a foot tall.

These plants are normally treated as annuals, but if yours is still hanging around it won't hurt to trim them back (by a third or down to where the new growth begins). Just make sure that you are not expecting any more wintery weather, as this could likely damage new growth.
