Wormwood ‘Silver King’


Artemesia ludoviciana ‘Silver King’

Exposure: Full Sun
Mature Size: 24-36″H x 24-36″W
Flower Colour: Silver White
Flowering Time: Summer
Growth Rate: Medium


Description: This variety spreads to form a large patch, and is excellent as a fast-growing groundcover on steep sunny slopes and similar places. Plants form a bushy, upright patch of fragrant silvery leaves, bearing loose sprays of silver white flowers in midsummer. Nice for cutting, and using in dried arrangements: simply hang bunches upside-down in a warm dark room. A little aggressive for the average perennial border, this may be contained with plastic edging, or simply grown in a large pot or tub. Drought tolerant, once established. Pruning hard after flowering will rejuvenate the foliage.
