Artemisia annua (Qing-hao, Sweet Annie) seeds, organic

$3.95

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Annual, 100 days to harvest of leaf and flower, 160 days to seed.

(Sweet Annie, Qing-hao) Native to China, growing in the wild, at the edges of civilization and in waste places. Plant prefers full sun, requires little moisture, and tolerates a wide range of soils, growing quickly to 7 feet, flowering in dangling yellow balls.  Traditional usage (WHO): Antimalarial, cancer therapy.  Source of artemisinin.  Overdose of this plant potentially toxic due to thujone content.  Light dependent germinator.  Sow on surface of sandy soil and keep moist until germination, which takes a week or two. Under lights, I get a good response after exactly 9 days.  Very tiny seedlings grow rapidly and transplant well.

Packet contains 200 seeds
1 g contains ~57,000 seeds
5 g contains ~285,000 seeds
10 g contains ~570,000 seeds
Certified Organically Grown

      We do ship to South Africa but our experience is that some of the packages do not pass customs, so we cannot guarantee receipt.

      What is the best method of using when it’s possibly toxic?

      Richo Cech

      Hello Kate,
      As with anything, toxicity is dosage-dependent, so you want to stick to prescribed preparations and dosages. This can be found on page 114-115 of “Making Plant Medicine” 4th edition.
      Best regards,
      Richo

      Hi Patrice, They are light-dependent germinators and are best pressed into surface of sandy mix and kept warm moist and in the light until germination.

    Does this reseed itself or should it be started from seed indoors every year?

      This plant reseeds itself quite nicely, and tends to stay true to form without hybridizing with other artemisias.
