This plant has been used to ward off lightning, revive the
weary traveler, repel moths and for deworming—hence,
Wormwood. We prefer to think of the Greek goddess Artemis who, it is said, was so pleased to discover its many
practical applications that she named it after herself. An
annual trim guarantees a neat appearance, otherwise
Artemisias are simple to grow and virtually pest free.
Plentiful small round buds and fluffy, pastel pink blooms populate gracefully tapered sheaves, and set against the deep purple branching stems they seem to sparkle. The elegant, airy flowers reign over an impressive textural foil of jagged-edged dark green leaves.
Size: 5' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Artemisia ‘Rosenschleier’ (P-1433)
