Artemisia General Information:

Artemisia are prized for their aromatic silver leaves, excellent texture and vigorous growth. They do not flower conspicuously but are used for their contrasting foliage. Also excellent in flower arrangements.

Artemisia Plant Care:

Fast growing. Can be cut back in spring to control size. Do not cut into old wood - look for buds to start and do not cut below that. Can be sheared during the summer if needed - new foliage will flush out quickly.
