Buy Artemisia ludoviciana 'Silver Queen' western mugwort: Ideal for a Mediterranean garden

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    Artemisias are prized for their fine, almost silver, aromatic foliage rather than for their flowers, which are dull and insignificant. This one 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.

Can you clip artemisia silver queen into a round ball shape? If not is there another variety that you can?

Hello, I would say that as these plants can get a bit leggy, they are not ideal candidates for topiary, however nipping them back regularly will encourage them to develop a bushier shape.
