Artemisia pycnocephala 'David's Choice' (Coastal Sagewort) - The texture of this variety is even finer than the foliage of the A. a. 'Powis Castle'; it also grows smaller and more compact (1 foot x 3 feet). The yellow flowers are on noticeable stems that rise out and away from the plant in the summer. This species is short lived and may have to be replaced after 3 years. It requires well-drained soils. Does not perform well in hotter inland gardens. Best in full sun with occasional summer watering. Selected by David Amme from plants growing at the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse and named by Phil Van Soelen of California Flora Nursery. Hardy to 0 F.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also 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 have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Artemisia 'David's Choice' .
