I wish I could properly describe the feeling of this Artemesia. It's so soft and moderately springy. When I rub the mound, I take the palm of my hand rounded against the top of the plant
and lightly rub it back and forth. (Kind of as you would do to a little boy's head after they get their "summer cut".
) The plant
springs right back to it's original shapely mound. It does tend to get tall and lanky, losing it's shape, in the summer. That's why Netty and I cut it back, to get a second new mound in the same garden year.
Tammy, I found all the scientific information on wikipedia.org (I can't post the link). It is
what some call wormwood. The scientific name is Artemisia schmidtiana.
