The Art of Artemisia

The Art of Artemisia

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on May 30th 2024

The calming silver-hued foliage of Artemisia adds an airy, cooling elegance to the garden.

Artemisia GardenGhost™ PP33773

New foliage emerges soft green, then turns a bright, silver-gray. Densely branched with a compact habit. Forms neat mounds.

Zones 4-9

Mature height:12-14"

Well-placed, interesting foliage is an essential refining element in perennial garden design. Versatile Artemisia's cool, lustrous foliage helps quiet the transition between boldly colored blooming plants or complements a softer, monochromatic theme. It rarely flowers, preferring to shine the spotlight on its petaled companions instead.

Only delicate in appearance, Artemisia, commonly known as wormwood, is just right for dry, hot, sunny spaces. This drought-tolerant, vigorous plant thrives in poor to moderate, well-draining soil.

A bonus! Its aromatic, bitter foliage is distasteful to most garden pests.
