Artemisia Makana Silver (Artemisia makana ‘TNARTMS’)

Artemisia Makana Silver

Want to add an ethereal plant to your garden? Then buy Artemisia Makana™ Silver (Artemisia makana ‘TNARTMS’) and feel like you are walking among clouds of silvery white! These are supreme foliage plants for accenting beds and edging in lacy fine-textured sterling foliage!

Also known as Wormwood, these create mounding, cascading filler and spillers anywhere you want to catch the eye! Soft and billowing clouds of long delicately cut-leaf foliage are silvery sage-green! These pair incredibly well with blue and purple flowers, light pink blooms, or set off the contrast big time with bold Purple smokebush, Black Beauty or Black Lace Elderberry, and Pandora Ligularia.

Artemisia produces tiny yellow button-like flowers that are insignificant, it’s best to pinch them off and encourage more of this divine silver foliage to keep forming until frost! Plus these incredible plants have that classic Wormwood scent – sharp, medicinal and herbal!

Planting and Application:

Makana™ Silver spills and tumbles over garden edges, pot sides and looks lovely in hanging baskets! Try potting up into an elevated urn or hanging planter to take your garden to the next level! Or use these fringy plants to encircle a gazebo or sculpture! Great facer plants, a row of these in front of dark evergreens along your foundation to kick the curb appeal into overdrive!

Silver Artemisia stays a tidy size without taking up lots of garden space, acting as heavenly fillers and spillers in planters and mixed containers! Imagine a tall urn on either side of your driveway or the entrance of a path with these glorious fountains of silver! Cottage and Rock gardens, en masse and in rows along borders look divine! Try creating a Moon Garden or add to a Sensory Garden because of its scent!
