GardenGhost® Artemisia

Availability: Out of stock

GardenGhost™ Artemisia (Artemisia ludoviciana 'G19123') is a gorgeous silver-flocked accent perennial that will add soft tones and aromatic beauty to your landscape! The silver leaves are flattened with toothed edges and have that classic Wormwood scent - sharp, medicinal and herbal!

These plants produce frosted clumps of leaves and are densely branched. All surfaces seem flocked in silvery white down and they are as touchably soft as they look! The foliage has a wonderful aroma and the tiny blooms that might appear are attractive to pollinators. They pair incredibly well with blue and purple flowers and light pink blooms. Or set off the contrast big time with bold Purple smokebush, Black Lace Elderberry, and Pandora Ligularia.

GardenGhost™ Artemisia is an unexpected plant to include in your sun garden! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 - 8, these are cold and heat-tolerant perennial plants! Forming silver mounds 12-14 inches tall and spreading evenly to a 24-30 inch rounded clump of finely-textured foliage!

Planting and Application:

GardenGhost™ Artemisia has fragrant foliage that perfumes the air as you brush past it! Be sure to use these tidy, mounded perennials along a pathway or walkway. They'll look great surrounded by dark mulch and clean up the edges of garden beds and borders! Add a formal touch by evenly spacing these plants along a border garden.

Plant in containers as silvery filler among mixed planters, or elevate them in a high-styled pot as a spiller! The spreading nature is wonderful groundcover and living mulch throughout any type of sun garden! Plant in Moon Gardens, Rock Gardens, and modern courtyards. Or add lacy, silver foliage to Cottage and Perennial gardens!

  • Toothy, Downy Silver Foliage
  • Neat & Tidy Mounded Form
  • Wonderfully Aromatic Leaves
  • Small Flowers For Pollinators
  • Great in Containers, Edging, Groundcover & Accents

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Artemisia loves the full sun and grows best in well-drained, enriched soil. Provide enough moisture for new plants to get them established, but after, Wormwood as it is commonly known, can tolerate drier conditions, making it wonderfully xeric! Clean mounds up in late winter to very early spring by trimming just above the ground.

  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • Moist Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Rarely Damaged By Deer
  • Mulch Well & Prune Early Spring
  • Low-Growing Herbaceous Perennial
