grey beauty

I have developed a fondness for grey foliage. This is Powis Castle Artemesia with some lavendar, a nice combination, I think.

This picture shows an artemesia that volunteers around my garden, I can count on it to use for filler for vases in the house. It looks good with almost everything (not yellow!) - I love it with pink roses. I believe it is Silver King artemesia, but I could be wrong.

This is some lamb's ear, a friend gave me a start. I had some Silver Brocade Artemesia at one point, but it has died off, so maybe I'll get some more. Not a fan of the Silver mound variety, it tends to get a hole in the center as the season progresses.
Anyone else out there love the greys? I have a few others I'll post later!
