Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou' (Purple Ghost Mugwort)
Zone: 4a to 9b,
Height: 48" tall
Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)
(aka: Artemisia #GUIZ137) From a 1985 Sino-British expedition to Guizhou Province, China, comes an improved form of the wonderful perennial, Artemisia lactiflora. The stout, 4' tall, deer-resistant clumps of red-purple stems are clothed in cutleaf, dark green foliage. In July the clumps are topped with large, airy heads of small, pure white flowers. While Artemisia 'Guizhou' grows great in typical garden soil, a moist site will reward you with an even more spectacular show.
