For a distinctive accent in borders or an unusual ground cover, we recommend this slinky silver foliage. 'Silver Mound' takes drought and cold, and aromatic oils make the leaves deer resistant. It also makes a fine addition to fresh or dried bouquets. A good companion for Mediterranean plants like Lavenders, Rosemary and Species Tulips. Plants form tidy clumps in average soil that is well-drained.
A large genus of plants, most of which are grown for their silver foliage and durable dispositions. They are invaluable for their ability to set off both foliage and flowers of a wide range of hues and are, or should be, a staple of borders where the dry heat they crave is common. In the South, where heat is combined with humidity, most Artemisias "mug out," except 'Powis Castle'.
