For a ground cover that has both a soft, felty texture and a brilliant silver color, look no further than Artemisia x intermedia, Dusty Miller, Silver Brocade. The foliage, usually reaching about 1-inch wide, has just a hint of green coloring and enough spacing between the leaves to provide a unique, snowflake-like appearance in your yard or garden.
Silver Brocade is especially smart looking when planted as a transitional border or patch between flowers, where it acts as a metallic neutral, softening the entire space and contrasting with the colors around it.
In terms of care, these are fairly low-maintenance and are especially hardy in cold, hot, or humid temperatures. Additionally, the plant is deer-resistant and spreads out quickly like a mat, covering the ground with its silvery-white leaves and inconspicuous flowers. Silver Brocade prefers full sun and flourishes in containers too.
