I absolutely love the Silver Mound. It's well-behaved and the silver foliage contrast is beautiful. Some of the plants survived the winter and some did not. I suspect the more protected areas helped the survivors. I want to purchase them again for next spring.
Artemisia schmidtiana 'Nana or Silver Mound'
- A great contrast to other kinds of foliage

- Very good in hot, dry spots
The most popular of all Artemisia and for good reason. It has delicate feathery leaves and a small compact growing habit. If you touch it you will want to buy it; it is so soft!
