Groundcovers are a great solution for suppressing weeds in tough spots. Silver Mound Wormwood is a great choice for those hot, dry and rocky spots where nothing else will grow. A perfect mounded shape and downy soft foliage make this an inviting perennial to touch and smell. Wormwood is perfect in a mediterranean garden plan, in a rock garden or as a cooling element in an Asian inspired planting.
Silver mound Wormwood is very low maintenance once established. The foliage will remain mostly evergreen in all but the coldest of the hardiness zones. Silver foliage tends to remain fresh and lively even during the hottest of summer weather and pairs well with Coneflowers, Salvias and Phlox. Deer and rabbit resistant.
Silver Mound Wormwood Care
Silver Mound Wormwood will perform the best in a sunny, dry spot. Part sun is tolerated either early in the day or late in the afternoon. Soil pH and texture is not important, although the heaviest clay soils may cause root rot in areas that have wet winters. The oils on the foliage can be a skin irritant to some people and wearing gloves or washing your hands soon after handling is recommended.
Fertilizing with a well balanced, slow release food is best applied early in the spring as new growth emerges. Pruning to keep in a mounded shape is not necessary. The only cutting back needed is in the early spring to remove any winter damaged branches. Silver Mound Wormwood is small enough to be combined in a mixed seasonal container planting. Performing as both a “filler” or “thriller” plant.
Silver Mound Wormwood Spacing
The mature height and width of Silver Mound is a compact 12-24 inches. Wormwood planted in drier spots tend to stay smaller than plants that are given supplemental water. Spacing plants at 20 inches on center will ensure quick cover when planted in large groups.
