Southernwood (Artemisia abrotanum) potted plant, organic

$10.00$28.50

Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 10

(Old Man, Southern Wood, Lemon-scented Southernwood) Woody perennial shrub native to the Mediterranean basin.  Favorite of the late Juliette de Baraclai-Levi, the plant is lemon scented and is a soft and comely addition to any landscape.  Very drought tolerant, these are easy to get established and problem free.  Traditional usage (TWM): bitter tonic, vermifuge, insect repellant. Dried leaves may be made into a sachet and placed among the clothes, in order to discourage moths.   Provide full sun and dryish, fast-draining soil.  Grows 3 to 5 feet tall, although it is easy to trim them back and keep them shorter–around 2 feet, and shaped as you like.  Space plants 3 feet apart.

      They are in our standard tree bands and about 18 to 24 inches tall. All this is almost immaterial–once these are planted in habitat they grow very quickly.
