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.
Elevated by vigorous straight mahogany stalks that reach 4 ft. in the first season plus dapper coarsely-cut forest-green leaves, copious tiny white flowers embellish large branched panicles. ‘Guizhou’ can be paired with other tall perennials such as Aster ‘Bluebird’, or situated near Panicum virgatum ‘Warrior’ to echo its reddish stems.
Size: 5' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
