Artemisia annua seeds, organic

$2.95

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.

    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.
