(1 customer review)

$3.95$12.00

Family: Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

(Absinthe, Grand Wormwood, Grande Wormwood, Green Ginger) With its classic silver-green foliage and nodding yellow flowers, true wormwood is a worthy garden plant and thrives on dry edges and in the full sun. This is the plant that is used for making traditional bitters, also an ingredient in absinthe.  Traditional usage (TWM): vermifuge.  Of course, unreasonably high dosage or extended use can prove toxic due to a buildup of thujone in the system.  Sow tiny seeds on surface of sandy soil. A gratifyingly easy germinator and a long-lived plant on the landscape. In the fall, cut back to just an inch or so above the old growth.

    Wonderful Wormwood

    These seeds hit the ground running, and I quickly found myself in possession of too many seedlings (not the worst problem to have!). The ones I kept are happy and healthy, although they’re keen on horizontal growth unless pruned into shape.

    Very excited to grow this lovely! Do you direct sow? Start indoors and then plant out? Thanks!

      Hello Dee, These are indeed lovely! The seeds are very small, so direct-seeding is difficult. Better to press seed into surface of sandy soil in deep flat, tamp well and keep in the light and moist. Albeit the seed is small, they are relatively easy to start this way.
