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 a 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.
