Trees That Please Nursery: 30 Days of Fall Foliage, Thursday November 15th.


Artemisia Powis Castle


Powis Castle Artemisia is an evergreen or “ever silver” perennial. It is grown for its silvery green foliage which adds color to the landscape. Foliage is also aromatic with a very pleasant smell. Powis Castle Artemisia grows in dense puffy mounds reaching 2’ – 3’ tall and 5’ – 6 wide but can be kept to any desired size with occasional pruning. Leaves are thin and feathery. Powis Castle Artemisia produces yellow flowers that are not as showy as its foliage. Powis Castle Artemisia is low water once established and grows well in full sun.
 
As an evergreen, Powis Castle Artemisia does not change its leaf color in the fall or winter. Instead, it adds color throughout the year particularly through the winter when other plants lose their foliage.


It’s always a pleasure to look at


or to enjoy its scented silvery foliage.


Powis Castle Artemisia is best grown with low to regular water on a well-drained soil. It is hardy to USDA Zone 5.
