SWEET WORMWOOD

hp20 (Artemisia annua)

This annual medicinal plant, which is not well known in Europe, has been considered an immune system boosting “miracle plant” in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It is also used for digestive disorders, infections and exhaustion. Modern medicine makes use of the artemisinin compound in the treatment of malaria. In a domestic garden, the up to 2.5 m high plants give off a wonderfully aromatic scent. The herb has a hot, aromatic and bitter taste. Careful, the pollen is allergenic.

Comment: good for pollinators
Positive for pollinators: yes
