Artemisia or Curry Plant
Artemisia also known as curry plant or wormwood are evergreen perennials which are grown for their aromatic leaves which are usually silver-grey in colour. They bear cylindrical flower heads, nearly always yellow, which are borne in terminal panicles.
Where to Site Your Artemisia
These are perfect for creating the cottage garden theme or planting as part of a mixed border, normally placed near the front.
How to Grow and Look after Your Artemisia
Artemisia like to grow in well-drained poor soil in full sunlight.
They should be cut back to the base in Autumn as this will encourage new growth.
In hot weather the foliage exudes a pungent curry like aroma that will keep gnats away
