Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’ (Artemisia, Mugwort, Wormwood). An invaluable foliage plant, ‘Powis Castle’ is unique in carrying multi-branched stems of silver filigree foliage, which acts as a superb foil to medium-sized flowering perennials such as pinks or scabiosa. This plants’ silvery, lacy foliage is an outstanding accent plant in the flower garden, it is an ideal compliment to blue and purple flowering plants, and a useful buffer between flowering plants of non-compatible colors. Forms dense rounded mounds, and tolerates hot, humid weather better than most artemisias. This well-drained soil will be essential for winter survival. This artemisia benefits from periodic shearing to keep stems full and dense. Foliage hangs on in the winter garden; cut back hard in early spring when new growth appears along the stems. Considered deer resistant once mature.
