Description

Named after the goddess Artemis in Greek mythology, who benefitted from a plant of this family so she gave it her own name. Artemisia arborescens or Tree Wormwood is a dense evergreen rounded shrub that has very attractive, soft, silvery grey, deeply divided foliage. It also bears small yellow flowers in late summer but its really grown for its feathery foliage as it makes a great contrast in borders. This is a great large plant for adding a contrasting color to the garden.  Artemisia arborescens is native to rocky areas along the coasts of Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, and Greece. It has been cultivated for its essential oil that is used in perfumes, soaps, insect repellant and with mint as a medicinal tea that is thought to calm digestive distress, but this practice should only be considered under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner.
