With wonderful silvery grey foliage Artemisia ludoviciana ‘Valerie Finnis’ is sometimes called ‘White Sage’.
This is a plant grown for the foliage, attractive lance shaped leaves with lightly toothed leaf margins. It is an excellent border plant and well suited to cottage gardens.
This is a plant with a few other great attributes, it has few peat problems, rabbits don’t like it and it is almost disease free.
Maintenance is simple, prune it right back to the basal shoots in autumn, so thats just above ground level.
This is a plant that will self seed, so we suggest removing the flowers as they appear. It also spread by underground rhizomes, so give it room to grow and be ruthless about digging up errant runners.
Propagation is easy by division.
