Oops! I forgot to include the website address:

Here's a website with lists of drought tolerant native plants. You may be able to find more information by typing native plants Florida into your browser. Dusty miller needs to be deeply watered once each week. They normally establish their roots within 4 weeks of planting. Wilting can be simply a symptom of transplant shock or it could be that they need more/less water. Once a week should be enough for your plant. Glad you like the website. Stop in often!
