Perennials at Gorge Top Gardens: Artemisia
leaves of artemesia make it an excellent contrasting companion to flowers with vivid
colors like orange, yellow or purple. The soft silvery-grey foliage is valuable in
the garden to help spot light other flowering perennials. Artemisias are best grown
in full sun. The plants can have trouble in areas with hot humid summers such as the deep
south. Plants need good air circulation and a soil that dries out between waterings.
Plant in a moderately rich soil that has been amended with organic material.
Pinch or prune off tips of newly planted transplants to encourage a a bushy more compact
plant. Older plants tend to become woody and will need to be cut back to 6" -
8" to promote new growth. Artemesia is very easy to grow and will last for
years in the garden once established.
Zones: 4 - 9
Propagation: Lift and divide every 2-3 years
Problems: Can "mug-out" during hot wet summers
Notes: Artemisia can easily be rooted from stem cuttings taken in early
