My dusty millers are getting ready to bloom. They have become tall and somewhat spindly. Would it be OK to cut back the blooms, or would I injure the plants?

Dusty Miller plants can become rangey and unattractive if not cut back in autumn or spring. Cut yours down to ground level to renew the plants, or cut back the flowering stems and any overgrown branching stems. Dusty Millers are tough perennials and will come right back after being cut back.
