Powis Castle Wormwood

This sagebrush type plant has the very unusual name of Powis Castle Wormwood or Artemesia x'Powis Castle.' Sometimes you can only speculate how these plants got their names. Powis Castle (Welsh: Castell Powis) is a medieval castle, fortress and grand country mansion located near the town of Welshpool, in Powys, Mid Wales. I suppose the plant became associated with the place.
