Wormwood, Tree
Wormwood, Tree

  • Price: $7.00

The fern-like leaves of many species are covered with white hairs. Tree Wormwood is a shrub, which can grow 1-2 metres tall in its natural habitat. It can get much wider than that, creating a canopy which resembles that of a much larger tree. Artemisia arborescens (tree wormwood) is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to the Mediterranean region. It is an erect evergreen perennial, with masses of finely-divided aromatic silvery-white leaves and single-sided sprays of yellow daisy-like flowers. This plant is cultivated for its foliage effects, but in colder temperate regions it requires the protection of a wall. (Ref: see link).

Comments Warnings : The whole family of Artemisia is remarkable for the extreme bitterness of all parts of the plant: 'as bitter as Wormwood' is a very Ancient prover. See link for details.
