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

$3.95$12.00

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
Certified Organically Grown

      International Orders

      Plant shipping Strictly Medicinal Seeds

      As of 3/25/2021 and ongoing, international seed orders including Canada are made at buyer’s own risk. We cannot guarantee delivery and in the case of non-delivery there will be no refunds or re-sends. We will receive and ship orders as always, but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs or Ag., which is the reason for this non-guarantee.

      International orders (no live roots or plants) are shipped via AIR MAIL only and we do not provide phytosanitary certificates. Due to new, extremely stringent regulations, we cannot successfully ship seeds to: The EU, Montenegro or Scandinavia, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Arabia, Mexico, Central and South America or Africa. We still ship with some success to: Canada, Asia, and European countries not in the EU

      Hello Lesha,
      Yes, they’re fine in a container. They tend to size themselves to the container–if in a gallon pot, will tend to grow 2 feet instead of the 7 or so feet that one would expect if grown in the open garden.

      Hello Huang, Thank you, yes, the seeds are available and we are available to talk about them. The artemisinin is in the herb and the seeds are for growing the herb. This is a high artemisinin strain but as you probably know that’s not the only compound of interest. Feel free to purchase according to the parameters of the website. Richo

      Susie, No, you would have to use the flowering herb for a tincture, the seeds wouldn’t stretch. We’re going to be enabling the herb very soon–hit waitlist on the herb–it will stretch, it won’t run out super fast, we grew a lot of it, harvest probably next week. richo

      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.
