Tall drought-tolerant perennial

repels insects, deer, and burrowing animals like gophers.

Excellent with perennials and shrubs (like roses) or around the edges of the garden. Lacy gray leaves make a perfect background plant for flowers.

Contains a growth inhibitor that can stunt vegetables, and young plants. It doesn't seem to bother mature shrubs or established perennials. Easy from seed, needs little care once established. Digestive tonic, anti-parasitic, anti-depressant. Used in absinthe. Not for sale to WA, SD.

BOTANICAL NAME: Artemisia absinthium


Start seeds in flats in late winter and transplant in late spring, 12" apart into an area in the garden with full sun or light shade, with well-drained soil. Easy to grow from seed but germinates slowly. It can tolerate some drought once established. Trim off old flower stalks in spring and divide if overly crowded or center gets bare.
