Artemisia arborescens (Tree Wormwood) is an upright-growing shrub that can grow to 5-10 ft height. It has silvery-grey, finely divided, fragrant foliage. This shrub is extremely drought-hardy and prefers full sun, but will also tolerate partial shade.

Artemisia arborescens should be planted in a well-draining location in full sun. Generally, it is a low maintenance plant tolerant of drought, and a moderate amount of water will be sufficient. Pruning may be necessary for large shrubs, particularly if left unpruned for a long period of time.

For small shrubs (2-5ft tall), Artemisia arborescens is an ideal specimen for container gardens, even in cold regions. It does well in partial shade, and should be provided with frequent waterings. In cold climates, the plant should be brought in from outside during the winter months and allowed to rest indoors in a sunny location.

In addition to its ornamental foliage, Artemisia arborescens is a popular ethnomedical plant with multiple medicinal properties. It is used in various traditional medicines as a spice or herb. Some uses include treating digestive disorders and muscle pain.

With its ornamental foliage and its multiple uses, Artemisia arborescens is an ideal garden companion for any medicinal plant enthusiast.

Bixa orellana, Lipstick tree, Annato

Bixa orellana

Lipstick tree, Annato
Family: Bixaceae
Origin: Tropical South America
USDA Plant Hardiness MapLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersWhite, off-white flowersSpice or herbUltra tropical, minimal temperature 55F

This erect shrub with large, glossy green, prominently veined leaves that can become a small tree several feet tall. It is grown as a garden ornamental less for its pale pink flowers, which last only one day, than for its highly decorative two-valved seed pods, covered with soft, deep red hairs. The seeds inside are surrounded by orange-red arils, which yield a dye called annato that can be used in small quantities to color lipstick and foods like cheese and margarine; the dried seed pods are also effective in flower arrangements. When used as a hedge or screen, Bixa should be pruned often to encourage bush growth at the bottom of the trunk.
