Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou'
Unlike most artemisias, this one has showy flowers, on an upright plant with deep plum stems and dark green leaves. We'd tried this unsuccessfully in a few locations (if only common mugwort A. vulgaris were so easy to kill!), but our latest attempt, in a semi-shaded area behind our bog filter, appears successful – the plant has survived a few years, and grew taller this year than before.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Bob Gladish||Aug 09, 2015||This is the 3rd season my 'Guizhou's been in the ground, and it's all of 6" high. Needless to say, it's completely blocked-out by nearby tall plants. I'm thinking it gets adequate sun & moisture (though it could probably use more of the latter), so am wondering what cultural deficiencies are keeping it small. I too have a bog garden, and if a similarly under-performing Rogersia doesn't show better next year, I just might try the 'Guizhou' in its' place.|
