Artemisia (Artemisia spp.)

Artemisia Plant Features

The lacy, silver-gray leaves of artemisia provide cool contrast for bolder blooming perennials. Super easy to grow, artemisia thrives in sunny spots with poor soil conditions and has almost no insect or disease problems. These rabbit- and deer-resistant plants also look great in fresh or dried flower arrangements. Artemisia thrives in pots and planters, too!

Artemisia Growing Instructions

Plant artemisia where it will receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. This hardy plant does just fine in poor soil, but prefers not to grow where the ground is constantly wet. Offer it a little slow-release fertilizer in the spring and then leave it alone. If you want to keep the plants from spreading through your garden, clip away the flower heads before they set seed.

Artemisia is not intended for human or animal consumption.
