Definition of artemisia in English:
An aromatic or bitter-tasting plant of a genus that includes wormwood, mugwort, and sagebrush. Several kinds of artemisia are used in herbal medicine and many are cultivated for their feathery gray foliage.
- Genus Artemisia, family Compositae
- Plants with leaves adapted to coping in hotter climes, the likes of rosemary, lavender, artemisias and Convolvulus cneorum, will have to be planted in well-drained soils if they are not to suffer from waterlogging in wet winters.
- Good foliage plants for fillers are low-growing artemisias, dusty miller, and golden, purple, or tricolor sage.
- Don't forget to factor white and blue into your planting scheme; both do a great job of cooling off and separating drifts of hot-colored plants, as do gray-foliaged plants such as santolina, artemisia, and dusty miller.
