Artemisia ludoviciana ‘Valerie Finnis’

Valerie Finnis Artemisia

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.075.800

An outstanding silver-leaved perennial for any sunny border. This selection spreads less quickly than the older ‘Silver King', with a slightly wider leaf that holds up well to summer heat and humidity. Plants form a bushy, upright mound, with clusters of creamy flowers in July. Trimming back hard after blooming will rejuvenate the foliage. Nice for cutting, and using in dried arrangements: simply hang bunches upside-down in a warm dark room. Drought tolerant, once established. Especially nice in tubs and containers with other perennials.
