Wormwood 'Limelight'(Artemisia 'Limelight')Herb in 1Litre Pot

Wormwood 'Limelight' is a bushy spreading perennial is a semi-evergreen plant which has beautiful deeply divided yellow and green leaves and is also commonly known as variegated mugwort. Providing a large exhibition of lovely foliage, this is an excellent border plant too. The flowers are fairly unimpressive, small and off-white they are outshone by the beautiful foliage which is a perfect foil for brightly coloured flowers in your border or container. As a plant, it is well suited to mixed borders, as well as the herb garden, and works well as a ground cover or rockery planting.

Artemisia prefers full sun and shelter where it will flourish, especially if the soil is dry but fertile, making it an ideal drought resistant plant. It may need some protection in winter if you are in particularly cold area especially  when the plant is young. This shrub is fast growing and requires cutting back in late autumn to keep a good shape. It does have a compact habit, approx 50cm wide x 50cm high.

The flowers produce a scented blossom and the foliage is aromatic as well, making Artemisia a tough plant suitable for problem areas, as well as container growing.

Herb Usage

Wormwood has been used therapeutically since ancient times. in fact its common name wormwood is thought to come form the belief that it could rid the body of harmful organisms. Wormwood is the main flavouring of the spirit 'Absinthe'. It was also used in the past as a digestive aid and in preparations as a diuretic. Wormwood 'Limelight' has been developed to take full advantage of the beautiful foliage rather than any herbal use.

Product Warning  - The leaves may cause skin irritation wear gloves when handling.
