Silver Mound Artemisia

Posted by David Burton at

   A choice perennial that highlights the edge of the garden.  This perennial is perfect for dry areas and poor soils.  The texture and rich silver leaves present themselves in the middle of spring and then carry their color until fall.  Once the days start getting shorter in late September the foliage transitions to buttery yellow before dying back at this time we trim  This basal clump resembles silver sedum throughout the winter.  The blooms, which are secondary to the foliage, are borne in early summer, are silvery white, and blend in with the foliage.  A very easy to care for perennial that is perfect for contrasting other plants in the front of the border.
