Artemisia 'Powis Castle'

 

Powis Castle

'Powis Castle' is a silver foliage plant for the front of a sunny border. It's filigree leaves are a lovely foil for many border perennials. The foliage is aromatic, and in late Summer small yellow flowers appear. It does not do well in poorly-drained soils, and tends to be short-lived in wet conditions.

Flowering

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

The flowering season is from early Summer to early Autumn

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in early Spring in a sunny site where the soil is free-draining. (It doesn't matter if the soil is poor, as long as it is free-draining). Water the newly-planted plant well, and keep watering regularly until the plant is established.

 

Propagating by seed

From Late Summer TO Mid Autumn

This plant self-seeds readily. More of a problem is stopping it from self-seeding!

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Spring TO Early Summer

Take softwood cuttings from new growth early in the day in Spring or early Summer. Cut, neatly, a 4" approx. piece of a non-flowering shoot, pinch out the tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
