The Q&A Archives: Beach Wormwood (Artemisia Stellerana)

Question: Is Beach Wormwood a shrub, annual, perennial? I have it growing at my new house, seems to grow through winter. What do I do with it if anything. Please give information about it.

Answer: Artemisia stellerana is considered a perennial although it does seem to be "evergreen"; it requires very little care and is hardy from zones 4 through 10. It grows between one and a half and two and a half feet tall, requires full sun and well drained soil. Other names for it are Dusty-Miller and Old Woman in addition to Beach Wormwood. It is found growing wild in northeastern Asia and eastern North America.
