Botanical Name: Artemisia absinthium

Wormwood is a perennial shrub up to 1 metre with deeply dissected grey-green leaves and small pale yellow flowers. It originates from Europe and Western Asia.

The leaves are bitter and are used as a tonic to treat liver, gall bladder and digestive problems and to expel worms. It should only be used in small doses for short periods.

The leaves can be made into a spray that is effective against aphids, flea beetles and moths.


Place 500g of wormwood and 1litre of water in a saucepan boil for 20 minutes. Cool and strain. Spray liberally on affected plants. Do not use this spray on seedlings.

Growing Conditions

Wormwood thrives in sunny dry conditions and is drought and frost tolerant. It should be pruned directly after flowering to keep compact.
