Artemisia versicolor 'Sea Foam'
Ideal Sun Conditions:
Artemisia versicolor 'Sea Foam' is mostly grown for its gray foliage. To keep it's desired compact shape, cut off flower stalks after blooming, which is its only maintenance. Soft, rubber-like feel to its short, clustered, needle-like appearance on short 1 inch wide columns. It gives the impression of a coral bed in your rock garden. Not invasive. 2004 Plant Select Plant.
Use in Garden
Sunny xeric bed or border near the front. It's curlicue, sea form like leaves add interest and texture and the silver color pairs well with just about any other color. A good rock garden plant.
Trim off flower spikes after flowering. The leaves themselves are the attraction. A low feeder.
