Artemisia versicolor ‘Sea Foam’ is a low growing, mound with thread-like curlicues of silver white foliage. This very drought tolerant perennial is great for the front of hot dry beds and for well drained soils. Its sea foam-like leaves add an interesting texture to the garden and would be great tucked into a rockery.

- Culture Notes

The flowers are not significant and can be sheared off to maintain a tidier appearance and give a more compact habit.
