Artemisia

 

(D=deciduous leaf-losing)

Artemisia arborescens, 3 ft., bears silvery-grey leaves (not as finely cut as those of Artemesia abrotanum).

A. abrotanum (lad’s love, old man or southernwood), 3 to 4 ft., grown for its finely divided greyish leaves, which are delightfully fragrant when bruised; a favourite cottage-garden plant.

Both these species bear small, insignificant flowers. Plant from October to March in an ordinary soil.
