Gardeners' Notes:

RatingAuthorContent
Neutral coriaceous On Nov 9, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Grown for its finely cut, silvery, semi-evergreen foliage and not for its inconspicuous flowers.

In the artemisia trials at the Chicago Botanic Garden, this cultivar gave a superior performance, and outperformed both the species and other A. absinthium cultivars. It proved to be hardy where 'Powis Castle' was not.
