Jacobaea maritima, also known as silver ragwort or dusty miller, is a popular ornamental plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. It is native to the western Mediterranean region but is commonly cultivated in other parts of the world, including Europe, North America, and Australia. The plant is characterized by its distinctive silvery-grey foliage, which is covered in fine hairs that give it a velvety texture. The leaves are deeply lobed and can reach up to 20 cm in length. In the summer, the plant produces clusters of small, yellow flowers on tall, wiry stems. Silver ragwort is often grown in gardens as a ground cover or border plant, but it can also be used in mixed container plantings. It is relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate a range of soil types and growing conditions, although it prefers well-drained soil and full sun.
