Artemisia versicolor ‘Sea Foam’
at Digging Dog

Artemisia versicolor Sea Foam

Artemisia

This plant has been used to ward off lightning, revive the weary traveler, repel moths and for deworming—hence, Wormwood. We prefer to think of the Greek goddess Artemis who, it is said, was so pleased to discover its many practical applications that she named it after herself. An annual trim guarantees a neat appearance, otherwise Artemisias are simple to grow and virtually pest free.

Brimming with texture, ‘Sea Foam’ hosts a frothy display of incandescent silver-gray foliage. Swirling, curly, filigreed leaves are draped like finely cut lace along vigorous firm woody stems. Not intrusive and tight-set, this low mounding shrubby perennial can take it hot but not humid, needs well drained soil, makes a good winter statement and occasionally yields cute, little yellow buttons on downy white flower spikes.

Blooms August.

Size: 8"–12" high x 2' wide. Zone 4/5.

Customer Comment:

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
