Silver Mound is a plant. Are there different species? I have one that spreads out. I want the one that mounds.

    Silver Mound is a variety of artemisia. It tends to mound in the spring and then flop over later in the summer. You can give it a haircut if it starts looking a bit scraggly and it will fill out again. Powis Castle is an upright artemisia and holds its form better but does not mound.

    There are many varieties of this plant available.Unfortunately the mounded variety does not stay unless you constantly cut the leaves back.

    I am not sure of the variety that I have or where it came from, since I never purchased it and I haven't seen it at any of my neighbors' homes. It self seeded all over my yard and mixed in with my grass. I loved the mix of gray-green from the artemisia and the grass. It is the vertical type and I mow it when I d0 my yard. It has come back and spread even more. I am glad that mother nature filled in the dirt areas with such a soft attractive plant.

    I had silver mound artemesia. Mine stayed in a complete round circle all the time. It was just beautiful! Geez, I have to get another one! We moved & I must have missed getting a piece of that one! I did however, have another artemesia which was a green & gray varigated one, & it grew more rampantly, & was a little invasive. It would pop up anywhere. I would grow it again, but only in a large container, not in my garden.

    While I don't have it growing this year the only one that was an actual mound had a tag that read "Artemesia Silver Mound" and it was stunning. It didn't spread, was just a perfect mound of softness.

    I have only had the Silver Mound ( White) Artemesia--reminds me of Dusty Miller plant which can be a perennial in Tenn.There may be more colors but even the Silver Mound Artemesia is hard to find here. It makes a wonderful border plant.
