Artemisia (Latin name Artemisia arborescens) is a tall shrub with feathery split leaves. Due to its color and openwork leaves it is interesting even without flowers. Wormwood is widespread throughout Europe and not only, mainly due to its docile "character".

An unpretentious, lush wormwood bush many gardeners will love it. It grows well, it is easy to propagate it by cuttings. Falling to the ground, the branch quickly takes root. The soil is rather poor, with sand and gravel.

If you want the plant to look beautiful, you need to shape it, cut it... In height, wormwood can grow up to one and a half meters, but if there is no support, the bush will fall apart. This is a nice hedge, a backdrop for more vibrant, flowering garden crops.

Wormwood loves the sun more than the shade. She practically does not need to be looked after. Even watering is rare. Thanks to essential oils it repels most insects, and is not affected by diseases and pests. Sometimes the bush even grows too much and trimming of the rhizome is required so that there is room on the site for other representatives of the flora.

This tree-like plant also has healing properties... Traditional medicine uses it in the fight against worms, with pain in the stomach (excess acid), to strengthen hair and normalize the menstrual cycle.

In some countries, wormwood used as a spice, seasoning individual dishes with it. But the dosage is important here, since the plant has a specific taste.
