Q.Why Did My Dusty Miller’s Come Back The Next Summer When I Live In Zone 6?

Zone Zone 6, northeast OH | MaryFragasse added on September 30, 2021 | Answered

I read details on my favorite plant, dusty millers. It specifically said that dust millers are perennials that may come back in zones 8-10. I’m so stoked because mine came back bigger, bushier, and more beautiful this past summer. I’m amazed by this and want to know how this could happen! Or did I just make a discovery? 🙂

Here is a collection of articles that will offer more information on the plant:
