at Digging Dog
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.
Blooms August – September.
Size: 5' high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Artemisia ‘Rosenschleier’ (P-1433)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
