Dusty Miller is a form of foliage that shows a hint of green underneath a thick ‘coating' of white.

Its leaves are fringed, resembling those of a marigold.

You can control growth by pinching the top back to make it bushier if you desire.

Dusty millers do best in shade and do not like to be too wet. The dusty miller can overwinter if mulched heavily or brought indoors.

Pansies love cool, spring weather. They will bloom into summer, but only in the full shade and if moist, but not too wet.

This particular variety lacks the traditional dark ‘face', and is spindlier than traditional pansies. You will need to deadhead these delicate flowers to keep them blooming.

Caladiums are foliage plants that grow from rhizomes. Their leaves resemble a miniature and finer-stemmed elephant ear.

Caladiums do best in shade. They also prefer loamy soil that isn't too wet.
