Will wormwood deter rabbits from the garden?

Rabbits are not fond of wormwood. It can deter them from the garden, but they can become use to the smell and it stops working.

Wormwood Zoning Areas

I live in northern Minnesota and want silver mound as a ground cover. My conditions are not the best. My property is rocky and clay. Can I still grow it and will it survive?

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.

Sweet Wormwood

Do you believe that sweet wormwood (or any of its varieties) could be successfully grown in sub-sahara Africa?

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

Wormwood Artemisis

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…

Yes, prune it back to about 3 inches above the soil surface.
