Description

Family Asteraceae
Originating from Japan

  • Spreading mounds of silvery, soft, aromatic, semi-evergreen foliage.
  • A tactile rockery or pot plant, it rarely produces tiny yellow globe-shaped flowers
  • Easy to grow in free-draining soil in full sun.

Cushions of soft, frilly, dainty semi-evergreen foliage form a dense and irresistibly tactile moss-like habit. Its brilliant silver-green color makes a fantastic display in its own right, but when planted with black, purple, or any dark plant, it makes a stunning contrast. Each tiny strap-shaped leaf has a glossy-looking sheen, shooting from a semi-woody base of spreading stems hidden by the compact mound of foliage.

Great in Mediterranean planting schemes, coastal gardens, and in rockeries, pots, or any front-of-border position in full sun where it can root into free-draining soil. This is a valuable and adaptable variety for the UK’s recent hot and dry summers, making lush and healthy lawns less viable. The RHS has endorsed changing gardening styles to suit our changing climate, replacing grass with gravel and seaside-style planted areas is one way to do this. Artemisia is useful in such compositions, softening the impact of mulches like gravel and particularly slate. Its rarely-produced yellow flowers are a bonus, appearing on slender stems over the aromatic foliage.

Height and spread after 2 – 5 years 20cm x 30cm.
