Straight uprights stems of narrow silver foliage that look like white-felt in summer sun - a foil for dark penstemons or bright-pink wands of Dianthus carthusianorum

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering Period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Artemesias are prized for their fine, almost silver, aromatic foliage rather than for their flowers, which are dull and insignificant. This one is semi-evergreen and has slender, silvery-white leaves, that turn greener as they age and tiny, brownish-yellow, mimosa-like flowers in August and September. It is an ideal groundcover plant for a sunny, well-drained Mediterranean border or gravel garden. Drought tolerant once established, it's an excellent foil for white or brightly coloured flowers. Give it space to spread out.

  • Garden care: Cut back stems back to ground-level in autumn and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around base of the plant.

Mediterranean

Mediterranean gardens can take on various guises from the rustic and rambling to the formal elegance of an Italian courtyard. However, they all have key features in common, including the use of exotic, sometimes tender, drought-tolerant plants in pots and

The Chelsea Chop (and other methods of extending the flowering season)

Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new

Make a 'tussie-mussie' or posy of flowers

On the whole, I’m a pretty rugged sort of person. A disproportionate amount of my gardening time seems to be spent hammering scaffold boards together, or powering my way through waist high weeds at the business end of a petrol strimmer, or hauling improba
