Artemisia absinthium (Wormwood) Herb in 1L Pot 

Artemisia absinthium, or Wormwood is known by a host of common names: Absinthium, Absinthe Wormwood, Common Wormwood, Green Ginger or Grand Wormwood. Wormwood grows best in poor soil in a warm sunny position, so occurs naturally on uncultivated, arid ground, on rocky slopes, and at the edge of footpaths and fields.   Like most Artemesia , wormwood is an attractive and extremely aromatic foliage plant it can be at home in a mixed border as well as the herb garden. The stems are straight, growing up to 80cm tall, branched, and silvery-green. These branches hold spirally arranged leaves that are greenish-grey above and white below, and are covered with silky silvery-white hair. Its flowers are tubular and pale yellow in colour and appear from early summer to early autumn. Plants can become leggy if not pruned back in Spring they can be pruned back hard to 15cm above ground.
