A bulletproof plant with aromatic, silver foliage that is soft to touch and provides nice contrast and texture. A great choice for dry or cottage gardens with year round appeal.
Wormwood ‘Parfum d' Ethiopia’ is well branched and establishes quickly as a handsome, dense mound. Easily used in garden beds, rock gardens, embankments, pots and more. It makes a good companion to Fescue, Sedum, grasses or Angelonias.
Small golden flowers open summer to autumn, but it is really for the foliage that this plant is grown.
Wormwood ‘Parfum d' Ethiopia’ is virtually bulletproof. Grow in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Once established it is dry tolerant. Choose a sunny spot and prune back late winter or early spring to allow the new foliage to shine through. In more mild climates you are unlikely to have to prune.
