Artemisia arborescens (Large Wormwood) - A quick-growing dense, evergreen shrub to 4 to 6 feet tall by as wide with soft, white to silvery gray-green foliage that is deeply divided and with clusters of inconspicuous dull yellow flowers that appear in late spring. Plant in full sun to light shade. Needs good drainage and only an occasional deep watering once established and is tolerant of a wide variety of cultural conditions: heat, drought, wind, salt air, and cold hardy to at least 18 F (remains evergreen and no tip damage to 25 F). This is a great large plant for adding a contrasting color to the garden. Large Wormwood, also called Shrubby Wormwood is native to rocky areas along the coasts of Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Greece. We have grown it at our nursery since 1988.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Artemisia arborescens
