Artemisia Powis Castle


(Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’) 


A first class grey foliage plant with finely cut silver leaves.


Silver yellow but rarely seen.


Plant in a full sun position in any good garden soil that is well drained. Use it to separate colours that would otherwise clash as it blends with flowering plants beautifully softening bright colours and harmonising with pastels.


Prune to half its height at the end of autumn to ensure fresh foliage the following season. Requires some water in hottest part of summer.


Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best and growing well.
