Flower Fridays: Dusty Miller

Peony Bouquet With Dusty MillerDusty Miller looks so soft you could sleep on it—as if it was a sage green cloud. Though I wouldn’t actually try that, its softness makes it a very romantic greenery. And although it is delicate in appearance, it is strong and long lasting, making it a perfect accent for beautiful wedding bouquets. Try pairing it will frilly peony or lush garden roses for a stunning combo.

In the meaning of flowers Dusty Miller symbolizes delicateness—apropos of its appearance—and also happiness. Perfect for your wedding.

Here is the poem of the day, though it is not in reference to the plant dusty miller.

Hey, The Dusty Miller
By Robert Burns, 1788

Hey, the dusty Miller,
And his dusty coat,
He will win a shilling,
Or he spend a groat:
Dusty was the coat,
Dusty was the colour,
Dusty was the kiss
That I gat frae the Miller.

Hey, the dusty Miller,
And his dusty sack;
Leeze me on the calling
Fills the dusty peck:
Fills the dusty peck,
Brings the dusty siller;
I wad gie my coatie
For the dusty Miller.

XOXO Rachel
