Artemisia Ludoviciana 'Valerie Finnis' (Western Mugwort)

Artemisia Ludoviciana 'Valerie Finnis' (Western Mugwort)

Decorative, silvery foliage

Prized for its aromatic, silvery-green foliage, this sun-loving perennial forms a natural upright mound, which is topped with very small, yellowish-brown flowers in late summer. It makes an excellent addition to a Mediterranean-style planting scheme and provides a useful foil for pink and purple coloured flowers (as seen above planted with an Achillea). The scented foliage can be used in dried flower arrangements and once established the plant will become quite tolerant of drought.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
