Artemisia abrotanum ‘Lad’s Love’.
Artemisia is not a culinary herb but it is a great companion plant and insecticide. The leaves can be picked and mixed with chillies to make a rather effective organic spray that will help to control a wide range of insects.
It is an evergreen shrub with a fine silver grey foliage. It makes a great hedge, topiary or specimen plant.
Artemisia will grow to about 1m high by 1.3m wide and will enjoy a full sun to part shade position. It can handle most soil types and is well suited to growing in large pots. Prune in mid autumn to keep it bushy and compact.
