Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou'

Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou'
white mugwort
Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou'

Common name white mugwort
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3-8)
Flowers white (August-September)
Size 6'
Light sun-part shade

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.
