Winter care of a dusty miller

Terri63 added on November 23, 2015 | Answered

I didn't realize how big the dusty miller would grow. I have 4 of them planted together and want to move 3 of them. Do I need to trim them down for winter and then replant in spring? I live in Oregon, in the suburbs of Portland.. Thank you Terri

Dusty Miller should be hardy in zones 8 - 10.
It could be a tender perennial in your zone 8 area.

I would add some winter mulch protection and wait until spring to lift and divide the plants.
