Sweet fragrance perfumes the air wherever you plant this silvery upright Artemisia. With a freely branching and vigorous growth habit, it makes an excellent filler plant for beds and larger containers. We love it planted with purple and white Angelonias. ‘Dueparethio’ PP 23,017
A large genus of plants, most of which are grown for their silver foliage and durable dispositions. Artemisia 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.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ar-teh-meez'ee-uh
Artemisias are grown for their attractive, silvery foliage. They are invaluable in beds and containers, setting off both foliage and flowers with a wide range of hues.
Light/Watering: Plants thrive in well-drained soil in full sun. Most prefer relatively dryer growing conditions.
Fertilizer: Provide a light application of balanced, granular fertilizer in early spring.
Pruning: If necessary, cut back shrubby perennial varieties in spring to maintain a compact shape. For varieties that tend to fall open in the center in late summer, shear back by half after bloom to keep plants full.
