ARTEMISIA

Common namewhite mugwort
Familyasteraceae
Life cycleperennial (Z3-8)
Flowerswhite (August-September)
Size6'
Lightsun-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.
