Absinthe Wormwood

Artemisia absinthium

Why not grow the 'Green Fairy' in your own garden? This is the true wormwood used in the production of the alcoholic liquor much-loved by French bohemians in the 1860s. Whilst you probably won't be distilling your own liquor in the backyard, you can still enjoy this worthy-garden plant. It makes a shimmering hedge that adds structure to a low-water planting and is stunning under moonlight. Use an infusion of the leaves to treat aphids moths and as a slug deterrent, and plant one in the chook run to keep fleas at bay.
