Known also as tree wormwood, Artemisia arborescens is a tried and true silver foliage plant that provides a year-round highlight with its attractive deeply disected soft grey leaves. Coping with both sun and light shade, it is a great option as a softly mounding hedge linking sunny and shaded aspects of the garden. A low maintenance quick growing perennial that thrives in hot, dry, coastal and exposed conditions. Often used in mediterranean, seaside or cottage themes. Fire retardant and frost hardy.
Full sun/part shade, must have free-draining soil as it dislikes wet feet. Copes well in harsh conditions, including salt laden or exposed sites. Extremely drought tolerant. Prune for shape after flowering and to maintain density.
