Artemisia Silver Mound Description
Silver Mound Artemisia is a compact mounding aromatic drought and deer proof groundcover and one of the most popular perennial foliage plants for sunny areas.
Like most other Artemisias, the primary appeal is not the flowers, but rather the silvery, grey foliage which forms a hemispherical mound.
Silver Mound's glistening silver foliage and delicate texture works works well with any color or on its own as a focal point in the garden.
Artemisia is ideal for hot, sunny, well drained locations . They do best in low fertility and little water. Artemisia happily embraces heat, humidity and long dry spells.
Silver Mound Artemisia benefits from a summer clipping, usually in late June. Plants quickly rebound and remain attractive for the remainder of the season.
