Artemisia lactiflora ‘Guizhou’

Guizhou Mugwort

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.075.210

A selection of the White Mugwort, valuable for late-season display in the border. Plants form a bushy, upright clump with red-brown stems and ferny black-green leaves that are pleasantly musk scented. The showy sprays of creamy-white flowers are a lovely contrast in late summer through fall, and are also valuable for cutting. Combines nicely with blue or variegated leaved neighbours, as well as with other fall bloomers like Aster or Rudbeckia. ‘Guizhou’ is happiest in a site that remains constantly moist.
