Grow Heirloom Herbs - Plant Absinthe Wormwood Seeds

Sometimes known as Green Ginger, Wormwood is a common component of the legendary spirit absinthe. While it has long been used medicinally, believed to be a digestive aid, it is Wormwood's relation to the liqueur known as the green fairy that makes it the subject of literature and legend. We think this attractive perennial with its feathery grey-green foliage and bright yellow flowers makes a delightful addition to any garden setting.
