Wormwood

Artemisia stelleriana 'Silver Brocade' COPF

This plant is known for it's bundles of distinctive gray-green leaves.

This is a low, compact selection, similar in appearance to Dusty Miller, but perfectly hardy. Plants form a spreading mat of bright silvery-white scalloped leaves. Terrific for edging, ground cover, or in mixed containers, even hanging baskets. Clip back hard in mid summer, when stems begin to grow upright, in order to maintain a low mat-like effect. Flowers are insignificant. This was introduced to North America by the University of British Columbia Botanical Gardens under the incorrect name ?Silver Brocade'. Registered with COPF.
