Silver foliage in the garden is always a welcome sight during the hottest days of summer. Silver Brocade Artemisia keeps its cool, perky looks fresh even when other plants have decided to succumb in the heat. The perennial Dusty Miller has delicately lobed foliage that keeps its good looks for almost 12 months of the year.
Silver Brocade can be used effectively as a ground cover in a perennial border, as an edging plant along a driveway or sidewalk. The silvery grey foliage makes a great contrast to other shrubs and perennials that have red and purple flowers or leaves. Artemisia is a common “filler” plant in mixed seasonal containers and hanging baskets. Many times it is used as the “permanent” plant that stays all year long. It looks great with spring blooming bulbs or in the winter with miniature evergreen firs and Ivy.
Silver Brocade Artemisia Care
Full sun is the preferred spot for Silver Brocade Artemisia, although shade late in the day or early in the morning is fine. The compact foliage benefits from regular watering until properly established. When grown in containers, Artemisia needs very regular irrigation. Fertilizing can be done once a year. Early in the spring with a well balanced, slow release feed is recommended.
Low maintenance is definitely the case for this perennial. There are very small flowers that bloom late in the summer, but no deadheading is needed. A quick cut back of any winter damaged foliage is all that is needed early in the spring as new growth emerges. Dividing can be done every 3-4 years or earlier if it is being used as a ground cover.
Silver Brocade Artemisia Spacing
Silver Brocade is much more of a mounding plant than a leggy spreader. The mature height is 6-12 inches with a width of 24-30 inches. When planting as a ground cover a spacing of 24 inches on center is recommended. Planting in a container can be much closer.
