Sweet Annie

  • $4.00

Description

Artemisia annua

A delight to see and smell in the garden!

Sweet Annie has finely-divided foliage that is gray-green in color and has a sweet aroma. By mid-summer, it is dotted with tiny cream-yellow colored flowers.

This is a hardy plant that tolerates cold temperatures and poor soils. It thrives in partial shade during the hottest part of the day. Care must be taken to give it plenty of space from other plants in the garden. 

The subject of much lore throughout history, this attractive, 3'x3' plant sports silvery, ferny leaves and is said to repel animals from the garden. Can self-seed so plant where you want to grow it again next year.
