Artemisia afra


Availability : Available

Description :

A great favourite!  Artemisia afra or African wormwood:

  • looks like a beautiful fern
  • has evergreen, aromatic foliage
  • easy to grow in the sun in ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry.

Native of South Africa, its use in traditional African medicine is widespread across the continent ...

In our gardens we plant Artesmisia afra at the back of a bed for its upright shape when it is flowering, or in a border for its superb, finely-cut, grey-green foliage. When planted in a border, prune regularly to prevent spreading.
