Southernwood (Artemisia abrotanum) potted plant, organic
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.
