Artemisia stelleriana Silver Brocade

Silver Brocade Artemisia

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.075.060

(=‘Boughton Silver’) This is a low, compact selection, similar in appearance to Dusty Miller, but perfectly hardy. Plants form a spreading mat of bright silvery-white scalloped leaves. Terrific for edging, groundcover, or in mixed containers, even hanging baskets. Clip back hard in mid summer, when stems begin to grow upright, in order to maintain a low mat-like effect. Flowers are insignificant. This was introduced to North America by the University of British Columbia Botanical Gardens under the incorrect name ‘Silver Brocade'. Registered with COPF.
