(Absinthe, Grand Wormwood, Grande Wormwood, Green Ginger) With its classic silver-green foliage and nodding yellow flowers, true wormwood is a worthy garden plant and thrives on dry edges and in the full sun. This is the plant that is used for making traditional bitters, also an ingredient in absinthe.  Traditional usage (TWM): vermifuge.  Of course, unreasonably high dosage or extended use can prove toxic due to a buildup of thujone in the system.  Sow tiny seeds on surface of sandy soil. A gratifyingly easy germinator and a long-lived plant on the landscape. In the fall, cut back to just an inch or so above the old growth.

Loved by many for their beauty and utility, maligned by some, the Artemisias always seem to get a reaction.  This is a far-flung set representing some of the more useful species such as Artemisia annua which is recommended by the WHO as an antimalarial.  Western Mugwort (what the Native Americans call White Sage) is a powerful ally with a wide distribution in Western US.  Both absinthe and yomogi are well-respected in Europe and Japan.  Excessive dosage is potentially toxic.  Similar to the thin line between genious and insanity, so is it sometimes with the thin line between efficacy and overdose.  Artemisias prefer full sun and dryish soils.  They are light-dependent germinators.  Mix very tiny seed with sand before sprinkling on surface and tamping in, so the seedlings do not overcrowd.  Keep evenly moist until germination, which can take some time.  These plants will require reasonable water to get established, and once established are drought-tolerant and allelopathic.
