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

(4 customer reviews)


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, widely used to keep virus from replicating.  Source of artemisinin.   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.

    excellent seeds

    i was able to germinate these with no problem. i poked holes in the bottom.of a jiffy seed starter tray for drainage, removed the peat moss tablets and filled it with miracle grow tropical mix soil, soaked it down, sprinkled the seeds and patted them down, then set the tray in the bed of my pickup truck in full sun. the sprouts began to appear after nine days. still too small for a photo but i can see them clearly
