Artemisia ludoviciana

this particular species of Artemisia is sometimes called . . .
'Artemisia', Dusty Miller, Native Wormwood, White Sage, & Louisiana Sagewort
this particular cultivar is donned 'Silver King', i believe..

mine appears to be hungry for nitrogen and micros (its planted in 'whatever' mix:lol:) and in need of thinning out..

going to seperate the rhizomes of these lil babies to individual contaners to propagate
and the majority of it will go to a nice well-prepped bed for the longrun..
overwinters fine, as you can see, and stays silver/green most of the year

note the dead stalks in the middle; artemisia_2.JPG
i left them for the pic for comparison--those were starts gifted to me last yr
see how the new growth is mainly around the edges of the container?
well the starts were planted to the middle! hehe
and died-back after the underground runners took hold,
i didnt expect a wreath tho! :eusa_ange

finally, here's a bonus pic of one of my prettier (this time o yr) hen & chicks (Sempervivum)

which doubled in size in less than a year :) chickies comin soon!! :eusa_danc

well, hope u likey, not exactly entheogen material, cept the wormwood,
but i enjoyed takin the pics :)
and most of all findin these suckers alive after so much neglect and mistreatment Posted Image

be well :greenboun

maybe a mod can correct the error for me but im pretty sure this is Silver King NOT Valerie Finnis which has a much broader leaf surface and a somewhat different phyllotaxy than this variation of A. ludoviciana ...

thx for lookin =0)

Botanical Name:
Artemisia ludoviciana 'Silver King'

Common Name:
Silver King White Sage

Asteraceae (or Compositae)

The cultivar 'Silver King', known for its silvery-gray foliage (like most artemisias), is relatively compact, and cold-hardy to zone 3.

(some pics of this cultivar below...)
