Plant Type: Perennials
Aptly named, 'Silver Mound' has soft, feathery foliage and forms a compact, silky, cushion-like mound. It has many applications in the garden including: edging, rock gardens, pots, or a filler plant for hot, dry areas. It has long been one of the most popular silver foliage plants.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
An excellent choice for hot, dry sites, Artemisia should be grown in very well-drained soil and full sun. To avoid "melting out", it should be grown in poor soil and trimmed back in late spring. 'Silver Mound' rarely needs dividing and should be left undisturbed. Cut back hard if the foliage opens up in the center. Prefers being grown on the 'hungry' side. Propagate by stem cuttings.
