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 background 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.
