Details

36" tall x 30" wide (cutting propagated). This is a very underused ornamental sage. With dissected silver-gray foliage, it is the perfect companion plant to use with other flowering perennials and ornamental grasses to bring out interesting contrasts of leaf color and texture. It almost never flowers, thus maintaining its neat appearance with no extra effort. Not at all fussy as to soil type, "Powis Castle" is also quite drought tolerant. Prune back to 6" tall in mid-spring to reinvigorate plant each year

    Comments about High Country Gardens Artemisia Powis Castle:

    I don't usually write reviews, however I have become a High Country "Believer". I have ordered plants (75 - 100 individual plants) from High Country for the last two years and I have never lost one! Seriously, how often does that happen. They are fantastic, provide thorough instructions for planting and care and all my plants are beautiful. I live in a very dry area so I have gravitated toward drought tolerant plants and my gardens look beautiful. The Artemisia far exceeded my expectations, it is bigger than the size given in the description and it really hardy. Love High Country and we'll be buying more each and every year!

        Comments about High Country Gardens Artemisia Powis Castle:

        I planted 3 of these and could not be happier. They are preforming very well and came back after a hard winter and a severe pruning. I have had to cut them back a little as they have grown over some of my succulents but it really makes the plants more attractive. When they say they spread 30", believe it and plan for it.

              I planted 3 of these last spring. This spring they are coming back wonderfully and an amazing back drop to my desert flowers. So highly recommend, but beware. When they say it spreads to 30", believe it!!!!!

                I planted this last spring in morning sun and afternoon shade. It received water every 7-10 days in sandy soil, but its habit was floppy and spreading. I plan to move it this spring into full sun all day in a drier location where its shape should be more thrifty.

                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).
