Artemisia stelleriana 'Morris Strain'

Common name: Dusty Miller

Dusty Miller has been used in dry gardens as long as I can remember. So it was a nice surprise when we started with this 'Morris Strain'. Much improved, it is better in every way - more leafy, brighter silver-white leaves and hardy.

I am sure that it will find its way into colourful window boxes and municipal plantings. We like it best in the rock garden.

Ideal conditions: full sun, well drained lean soil, ample water

Height: 20-25 cm (8-10") tall

Flowers: white; 30-35cm (12-14") in height

Foliage: bright silver-white


Coldest zone: 3-7 (find your zone; further info on plant hardiness)
