I love artemisias with or without irises. "Silver Mound", however, tends to
mug out in our humidity. I've had better luck with Artemisa stellariana
"Silver Brocade" which looks like a prostrate Dusty Miller. Nothing wrong with
Dusty Miller, either. Of the larger deeply lacinaited artemisias I think the
ubiquitous "Powys Castle" is less attractive that some other cultivars,
especiallly "Mrs. G. Reed" which I've found only at Viette. Where PC is a warm
grey, MGR is a cooler green grey and I like it a lot. With this grey you'll
want some dark green. Germander works for me.
