Genus of about 300 species of annual and perennial herbs and shrubs with usually evergreen, fragrant and grayish leaves.
Latin name: Artemisia absinthium
Artemisias should be planted in sunny sites and free-drained soils. Cut the plants to the ground in autumn, in case of herbs, and in late winter in case of shrubs, with a view to maintaining a nice dense shape.
Grown in rock gardens, in groups and in flowepots.
The herbs are easily propagated by division in spring or in autumn and the shrubs by semi-woody cuttings in summer.
Upright perennial with a woody lower stem and compound, fragrant, grayish leaves.
