Great shot! This plant actually has very pretty blooms, but you never see them up north. I have only seen them bloom here in the south [US] and was absolutely shocked to see one in bloom.

I was shocked too!! I have grown them here in the South before and they didn't bloom. But here in my new garden, they flourish!! I really like the yellow flowers against the silver foliage.

Well... You learn something new every day. I plant them every year and see them everywhere I go around here...I never knew that they bloomed! Gotta move south!

Yvana,
I've been down that way...and I love it! I worked for a summer near Savannah - loved it! And my parents live on the border of TN and NC, near the GA border. You're lucky to live down there! I have to say that I love the snowsnorms and the countryside here, too, though. We lived in Hawaii for 6 years - now THERE I would return to! Everything grows! Orchids just grow wild on the roadside!

I have been to NY State too...and it is very beautiful. I was amazed at it's natural beauty! A bit chilly for me, though! (I have never had to shovel snow or even go out in it!!) Ha! I'll bet Hawaii is unbelievable!! You are very fortunate to have lived there. What part of NY do you live in? When I visited, we went to the SW corner, near Erie, PA and the Allegheny River. I really enjoyed it! It was very different than Atlanta!

I live in south central, on the PA border, near the city of Binghamton. Very similar look to our area and the Erie, PA area. Yes, pretty, but Brrrr cold!

I wasn't much of a gardener in Hawaii - too busy using our boat on the ocean every weekend. Wish I would have grown more stuff. But we did have, in our yard, lychee trees (cool looking fruit) and breadfruit (put on the grill and pop open - tastes kinda bready). Was good with Ahi! (tuna - we caught "small ones" - "only" 60 pounds!) And giant elephant ears that I could hide behind!

I liked Atlanta - was only there briefly for the gift mart (Peachtree area, by the big Marriott). Are you in the city or outside?

You say it never blooms in the North, but we had a very mild winter in 2011, and I have seen at least 3 dusty millers blooming in Saginaw, Alma, and Bay City, Michigan. 7/12 Which is way north. This speaks directly to global warming. It's 100 degrees today too!

July 6th, 2012.

there may be a time coming soon to revise the USDA growth zone charts coming to reflect the march of warm temperatures northward.
