ARTEMISIA schmidtiana 'Silver Mound'
Silver Mound Wormwood, Wormwood
Silver mound wormwood, is an herbaceous perennial that originates from Japan. It forms a low, mounded, clump of very finely divided silver foliage, hence the name silver mound, and has insignificant yellow flowers that appear in mid-summer. This cultivar is more compact than the straight species. One ornamental aggravation with it is its tendency to fall open in the middle and show its bare inner stems. This is a very hardy perennial that is moderately drought tolerant and does best in sites with full sun and well drained soils. It makes a nice addition to perennial borders.
