Artemisias are prized for their light almost silver aromatic foliage rather than for their flowers which are dull yellowy-brown and insignificant. This cultivar has long pointed notched leaves and forms an upright natural mound. Once established it can also cope with drought. It makes a great edging plant for a sunny border or as part of a Mediterranean scheme with pinks and purples (seen above planted with an Achillea). The aromatic foliage can also be used in dried flower arrangements

  • Garden care: Cut back stems back to ground-level in autumn and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
