Artemisia filifolia (Sand Sage)

Artemisia filifolia
Sand Sage

The fragrant, threadlike leaves and stems of this airy evergreen shrub are covered with white hairs, giving it a lovely silvery cast. The pale yellow flowers are inconspicuous. Sand sage is native to the western plains and much of the Southwest, growing in rocky or sandy soils. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soils at upper elevations. In addition to making an attractive ornamental plant, Sand sage is useful in revegetation and erosion control projects. It is not recommended for low desert elevations.
