Artemisia schmidtiana 'Silver Mound'
Angel's Hair, Sagebrush, Mugwort
|The ornamental types of these plants are grown for their striking, silver-gray, aromatic foliage, which is often used in flower arrangements. The leaves of two other types are used as the cooking spice tarragon. For excellent cut flowers, use only the unusual, moisture-loving Artemisia lactiflora, which has striking blooms. These mostly drought-tolerant plants need only average-to-poor soil and full sun for healthy, compact growth. Rich soils create lanky, short-lived plants. Prune lightly in spring to maintain compactness and to promote new growth. Start by cuttings or division.
Finely-cut leaves form a dense, silvery mound. Remove the insignificant flowers to promote compact domes of foliage. Excellent foliage plant in borders and rock gardens.
