This tender shrub is usually grown as a half-hardy annual foliage plant. The young leaves of 'Silver Dust' are slightly lobed, a bit like oak leaves, but as the plants mature, they become deeply cut, much paler in colour and are covered in a silvery grey fleece. To encourage new basal growth, flowering should be prevented by regularly removing lengthening stems. They are easily raised from seed but, as borderline perennials, they often survive the winter in mild gardens and can be grown from cuttings.
