Artemisia (Artemisia schmidtiana) 'Silver Mound' is a beautiful groundcover plant with silvery green, soft, feathery foliage. It does well in medium to dry soil in full sun, with some afternoon shade in hot, humid summer climates. It doesn't flower, but it does spread slowly. It's a gorgeous accent plant, providing excellent color and textural contrast for the garden bed.

These plants are so very soft and have gorgeous coloring. They get HUGE. Mine are at least 2' tall and 3' around. They will take over the area where they're planted. I don't do anything special for mine. They just get massive, and they also make a huge mess in the fall when they lose their leaves.
