Silver Mound

Artemisia is generally grown for its silvery, lacy foliage that makes a wonderful accent in the landscape or containers. The silvery color brings harmony to landscapes and is especially nice for bringing contrast to plant displays.

Silver Mound is a compact plant that can be used for edging, rock gardens, containers or accent plants in perennial borders. It's neat, compact habit and feathery texture offer designers a great plant to work into combinations that need contrast or unique texture. Works well in hot dry areas. Great plant.
