No matter which common name you use - Fringed sage or Silky wormwood - you know Artemisia frigida has a feathery, fine-leaved appearance. Yet another common name, Prairie sagewort, tells us it is a prairie plant and indeed very cold-hardy and drought-tolerant. We grow it for its wooly, gray, aromatic foliage. This would make a beautiful groundcover for cold, dry regions.
