Artemisia schmidtiana 'Silver Mound'

Perhaps the most well known of all of the Artemisias, this forms an almost perfect mound of soft, silky, feathery foliage.  It will grow to about 12" high and 3' high and needs a sunny location and well drained soil to do well. 

It will also need to be cut back hard occasionally to encourage new, tidy growth.  Quite drought tolerant.
