Sweet Wormwood (Artemisia Annua) – Tall plants have fern-like, dark-green foliage dotted with tiny cream-yellow colored flowers. Use foliage for wreaths and as filler for mixed bouquets. Also known as sweet sagewort, sweet annie, huang hua hao, qing hao, and Chinese woodworm.

Sweet Annie is a sun lover and adaptable to many soil types. It needs only average moisture and will grow even under quite dry conditions. It usually flowers between August and September. The flowers are tiny and olive green and can’t really be seen unless you look hard. However Sweet Annie is mostly grown for the lovely aromatic scent of the foliage which can fill the whole garden when the breeze rustles it branches.

With sweetly fragrant foliage it has a wide variety of uses both medicinal and for handcrafting but is most often grown for fresh and dried cut flower arrangements and for wreath making. Sweet Annie has been used for centuries in its dried form in wreaths and other aroma projects. It is one of the best natural air fresheners around. Just wave a sprig of Sweet Annie in the air and it freshens the whole area. The plant, once dried holds both the color and fragrance very well and will last for years. The stems have scent which releases even more when waved around a quick burst of scent is quickly noticed. Sweet Annie is one of those things that once you’ve grown it in the herb garden, you just don’t ever want to be without.
