Silver Wormwood attracts many pollinators and is one of the host plants for the American Lady and Painted Lady butterflies. It is a fragrant, silvery-white shrub-like perennial with woolly grey or white hairs on the stems and leaves. Its flowers are nodding clusters of yellowish flowers that bloom throughout the summer.

This plant spreads via rhizomes and/or self-seeding and has the potential to become invasive. It has the potential to spread, so consider utilising soil barriers in locations where you do not want it to naturalise. Because of its versatility and proclivity to spread, it is an excellent choice for a low-maintenance, knee-to waist-high groundcover.
