A hybrid of native North American species including Artemisia ludoviciana. 'Silver Lining' finds the best in its parentage as a spectacular, durable foliage perennial. Broadly dissected silver leaves are showy from spring to fall. The mounded, low wide habit maintains perfect form all season and resists opening up. Use this perennial as a filler in the landscape and spiller in mixed containers. Buff yellow flowers are held on tall scapes. Flowering is not significant and this plant should be considered primarily for its foliage.
