I think silver mound stands a pretty good shot of growing and surviving if you amend your clay soil. Here are some articles that will tell you how:
Silver mound is rated for zones 3-9, you are zone 4 so you are within the acceptable range.

It could be Mealy Bug or scale.
Treat with neem oil.
Here are links for you.
Given the proper growing conditions and care, I would have to say, yes. You can also grow this plant in containers if the area is not suitable. Here is more information on growing this plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/celery/wormwood-plant-growing-sweet-annie.htm
the silvery gray foliage has all been packed down (I live in the Syracuse NY/Oswego NY area)and is dead looking. Should I cut it back and see if it has survived? Unfortunately I did not winterize it last fall,assuming it would take care of itself…
A few suggestions for you on this. I would rake up the dropped leaves; they can often spread diseases into the soil and your other plantings.
Then I would start with a simple soil test before amending your soil. This will save you time and most likely money to avoid guessing what it may need.
Your County Extension Office will help you with this for just a few dollars in most cases.

Beautiful gardens, just a bit of tweaking and hopefully everything will be thriving!
