Artemisia 'Sweet Annie' Plants

Artemisia annua

Artemisia 'Sweet Annie' is a wonderfully aromatic annual that will scent your whole yard with sweetness! Growing up to six feet tall, Sweet Annie is a formidable plant in the garden and self seeds profusely.

An amazing fragrance for dried crafts and arrangements, Sweet Annie holds both its scent and lush, green color for a long time after drying. Its feathery, fern-like foliage is a beautiful compliment to wreathes and arrangements, and is often used to replace Baby's Breath as a filler. The plant's woody stem can also be used to create a frame for the actual wreath that its leaves and flowers can be used to decorate! This is such a long-loved fragrance that people once used this as a natural air freshener in homes and general stores, as well as kept it hanging in their pantries to repel bugs and scent their stored goods.

Sweet Annie Plants

Also a natural pesticide and insect deterrent, plant Sweet Annie near your porch or patio and keep the gnats and other pests at bay all summer long! This easy to care for herb also has some medicinal qualities, found within its seeds and fragrant leaves. Taken internally in tea form, it was once used to treat colds and fevers, and its derivatives may also prove to be antimalarial. As an external poultice, Artemisia can also reduce the symptoms of boils and abscesses.

Easy to container plant, transplant to other areas of the yard or pull up if it is overwhelming your other plants, this sweet Artemisia prefers sunny or partially sunny areas and well-drained soil.

Uses: 'Sweet Annie' is the perfect herb for dried wreaths and crafts. Its long-lasting verdant color and sweet scent will remain enjoyable and fresh for a long while after picking. Also a terrific natural deer and insect repellent, plant this sweet smelling herb near your decks, gazebos and patios to ward off unwanted pests during nice summer nights!

Tips: Artemisia is a very vigorous self-seeder, so unless you would like your plants to multiply, we suggest deadheading them before they begin to drop. Handling the leaves and pollen of this plant may also cause skin irritation to people with sensitive allergies. Space plants about one foot apart when planting for best spacing.

I'll have to move them since they are in a temporary pot. But they are doing well and I'm looking forward to growing this for the 1st time.

5 of 5 Artemisia "Sweet Annie April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Deb Myers from Concord, NC United States  
When my plants arrived, they looked great.  I already have them planted and they have doubled in size.  I had planted sweet annie years ago and I have never been able to find them again.  So I was so excited to see them on this site.  I use these to cut and put in arrangements and to dry them.
