Artemisia thrives in full sun and is also heat and drought tolerant. Woodland edge gardeners, rabbits and deer won’t bother artemisia so plant it in confidence.

Proven Accents Silver Bullet Wormwood Care
This foliar falls in the easy to maintain category and its tolerance for all soil types is incredible. Alkaline soil? No problem. Acid or neutral soil? No problem! You can see why it accompanies so many other plants and adapts to their soil requirements. It requires very little intervention for watering and only medium attention with fertilization. In fact, once paired with other annuals and perennials, it will adapt to its surrounding conditions requiring no special attention for itself.
Deadheading is not necessary. Light pruning or pinching back will keep artemisia within its bounds should it really enjoy where it is located. It makes a great filler in container plants, a low spreading foreground or accent in your landscape or cottage gardens, or a silvery edging to your border plantings.
Proven Accents Silver Bullet Wormwood Spacing
Topping out at 6 to 10 inches tall and spreading 12 to 30 inches wide, Proven Accents Silver Bullet will also trail up to 24 inches making it an ideal foundation to your container planting as a spiller. Give it 10 to 14 inches of space between plants when first established and you will enjoy all season long complimentary color.
