Cineraria Maritima.

Botanical name: 

Cineraria Maritima L.—This composite plant, known popularly as Dusty Miller, is a native of the West Indies, and has been introduced as a house plant into this country. There is upon the market a proprietary preparation which professes to be the expressed juice of this plant, and is recommended in diseases of the eye, especially as an absorbent of cataracts. We do not know, however, of any sufficient scientific justification for a belief in this improbable property.

The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
