Traditionally, a major ingredient in absinthe, vermouth and other liqueurs. It is a strong bitter useful for stimulating the appetite and improving digestion. One of the oldest known remedies for worms. Not to be used long term or during pregnancy. Another classic plant for the back border of the herb garden. Easy to grow perennial and extremely drought tolerant. Prefers good drainage and full sun. Hardy to zone 3.
