Artemesia afra

English: Wormwood; Afrikaans: Wildeals

Artemesia afra - One of South Africa's most useful herbs, this plant is also a pretty garden subject. The foliage is silver, feathery and fern-like and the growth form is comparable to the common daisy bush. It rewards regular trimming with a cloud of silver foliage. If it becomes leggy it can be cut relatively hard to rejuvinate. The leaves can be infused as a tea for colds, flu, fevers and stomach disorders. Grow in full sun. Tolerates drought and most soils, but growth is lusher if regularly watered.
