Demonstration Garden - Artemisia
Area Lead: Marjorie Selden
Description: The Artemisia Garden features Artemisia, plants that thrive in full sun and dry habitats. The variety of leaf textures provides visual interest. Color in the bed comes from flowering plants from other genera with similar interesting leaf textures and habitat requirements. The soil under the rocks retains moisture that nourishes the roots of the plants.
