Details

3-4' x 3-4' wide. One of our favorites with its fine textured gray foliage, Sand Sage is a small growing shrub that tolerates challenging growing conditions with lots of heat, sun and drought. It's a very effective back-round plant in the xeriscape providing a dramatic backdrop of other perennials and ornamental grasses. Rarely offered, our strain of Artemisia filifolia is exceptionally cold hardy originating from a population in northeastern Colorado.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Artemisia filifolia:

    Love this shrub, I have planted in my front yard near a tree, the yard gets sun all day. Glad I purchased this shrub, it's drought tolerant which is great for me. It's grown twice it's size since planting it last year.

      He didn't make it. Maybe I used too much of my own compost and not enough of my own natural clay (we have a lot of clay). He didn't last even 3 days. I'v veen gardening for 50 years and have a degree in plant biology and have formaly taugh for the city but you can't win them all.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Artemisia filifolia:

      Beautiful plant, but had trouble growing this product in the soil and climate where I live. The soil makeup is clay and sand. Should grow, but didn't. Too bad! Was a pretty plant that looked like it was hardy.

      Q & A

      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).
