This Dusty Miller does best in well drained, even sandy soils with regular watering. It is fairly drought tolerant once established, but should be watered during prolonged dry periods. New plantings may require daily watering, especially in sandy soils, until the roots (which can cover a lot of area) are well developed. Senecio cineraria gets a rust disease and dies during prolonged hot, wet periods.
