    Comments about American Meadows Artemisia Silver Mound:

    This plant is a wonderful addition to my white garden. I love a grey-green look, and this artemisia is just perfect. I've only had it in the ground since this past spring, but, so far, it is healthy, and seems to perform well in our hot, dry, and windy desert climate.

      Comments about American Meadows Artemisia Silver Mound:

      What a beautiful plant! Interesting and distinctive fragrance; silky to the touch and such a lovely silver blue color. The plant that arrived was very small and I was concerned, but once planted in my rock garden, it began to grow rapidly. It is full and robust and looks great next to the veronica nearby.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
