I am never without this plant. It is treated as an annual in my garden and does well from Sep thru May. A haircut in between that period seems to help it last longer. Sometimes the foliage looks like it was dipped in flour or powder, its appearance is so velvety-silvery. It goes well with absolutely everything!
