Artemisia ‘Silver Brocade’, Artemisia stelleriana,
is a compact, silver-white, wooly perennial with a plant spread of 24-30”
and a height of 15”. ‘Silver Brocade’ produces yellow flowers in early
summer, (not being showy). The foliage, however, has a wonderful fragrance.
This striking variety is most noticeable when planted in perennial beds and
borders and in herb gardens for color and texture.
The ‘Silver Brocade’ likes sandy soil
but needs a well-drained area and should be planted in full sun with a small
amount of afternoon shade. Try ‘Silver Mound’ with Echinacea ‘Purple
Coneflower’ or Rudbeckia ‘Black Eyed Susan’ to add interest in your garden
or to accent fresh or dried flower arrangements.
