Comment:

Artemisia stelleriana is an Asian and North American species of plants in the sunflower family. It is native to China, Japan, Korea, Russian Far East, and the Aleutian Islands in the United States.  The species is widely cultivated as an ornamental and naturalized in scattered locations in North America, primarily on coastal dunes and other sandy locations.  Beach Wormwood is one of the best rockgarden artemisias and a standby of Southern gardeners near the coast.  Its size makes it a wonderful ground cover or edging plant for dry areas.  When it blooms it attracts butterflies and bees.  This plant is moderately salt tolerant and can tolerate drought.
