Many years ago I had a Dusty Miller with feathery lavender flowers. I have been looking for years to find this plant. Right now I have a Dusty Miller with yellow flowers and I would love to have one with lavender flowers again. Thanks for any help that I can get.
I wonder if it was some kind of Centaurea. (Bachelors Buttons relatives) Some of them are called Dusty Miller, Here's one link http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/638/
Good luck, and thanks for reading!
