Description :

Synonym: Artemisia umbelliformis, Artemisia mutellina, white genepi

Artemisia laxa is native to European mountains (Alps, Pyrenees) and grows on cliffs, scree slops, rocky grassland, moraines with siliceous soils and at altitudes of between 2000 and 3700 metres.

The plant forms a rounded clump composed of small, silky rosettes of white, palmate leaves. Height: 5 to 20 cm. Flowering in July-August with bunches of floral heads composed of yellowish flowers.

Although this wormwood is appreciated for its aroma, we like it more for its intense silver foliage and silky sheen.

In an ornamental garden we plant it at the edge of a raised bed or in a rockery combined with mini alliums, purple sedums or Sempervivum.

Artemisia laxa is a pure alpine, so we grow it in the sun in well-drained soil enriched with silica sand.

It does not like too much damp in winter. So make sure you carefully apply a gravel mulch under the plant.
